Bon Secours DePaul Medical Center designated a comprehensive stroke center

January 11, 2017

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.


Latest City Of Norfolk Winter Storm Update

January 8, 2017


Good afternoon all.
It’s sunny and we know you probably want to venture outside.
First, we ask you to stay off the roads.  While many are plowed, the roads are icy.  Until it warms up, ice will remain in certain spots.  For your safety, unless you have to travel, please don’t.
As you know, Norfolk received a lot of snow.  In our efforts to clear the snow, plows pushed snow to edges of roadways which in some cases, blocks driveways and neighborhood streets.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you leaving your home or neighborhood.  Hopefully with Mother Nature’s help, the warmer temps in the coming days will help melt the piles.
If you need help,   Operation Blessing Snow Buddies program has volunteers to help eligible residents.  Call 757-274-8650.
As a reminder, the City is unable to plow neighborhood streets.  Our plow equipment is large.  Most of our neighborhoods streets are narrow and we do not want to damage your car or property.
Don’t forget, if you have a sidewalk in front of your home, it’s up to you to shovel the snow off.
If you have any questions, call Norfolk Care Call Center 757-664-6510. We’re taking calls until 5pm Sunday.
Please ensure that this information reaches the masses.  Have a warm evening.
