The following article appeared in the Daily Press:
Bon Secours DePaul Medical Center in Norfolk received certification from DNV GL Healthcare as a comprehensive stroke center, the health system announced.
“With stroke care, you must have not only the best clinicians and resources, but also the ability to act quickly and organizationally with exceptional efficiency because of the time-critical nature and complexity of a stroke,” said John R. Baker, M.D., medical director of the Bon Secours Hampton Roads Neurovascular Center and the Neuroscience ICU. “This certification from DNV GL validates all the efforts we have put into our stroke care program in order to ensure the health and safety of our patients.”
The certification is based on standards set by the Brain Attack Coalition and the American Stroke Association and shows the medical center addresses the full spectrum of stroke care from diagnosis and education to treatment and rehabilitation, according to a news release.
All Bon Secours’ Virginia hospitals are certified stroke centers with six primary stroke centers, a stroke-ready free-standing emergency department and two comprehensive stroke centers.
