Baptist Health Lexington earns Advanced Certification for Comprehensive Stroke Centers

One of four state institutions with certification

LEXINGTON, KY. (Feb. 17, 2017) – Baptist Health Lexington has earned Advanced Certification for Comprehensive Stroke Centers from The Joint Commission and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.

image001Baptist Health Lexington is one of only four healthcare organizations in Kentucky to hold this certification. To be eligible, hospitals must demonstrate compliance with stroke-related standards as a Primary Stroke Center and meet additional requirements, including those related to advanced imaging capabilities, 24/7 availability of specialized treatments, and providing staff with the unique education and competencies to care for complex stroke patients.

Baptist Health Lexington underwent a rigorous onsite review, during which Joint Commission experts evaluated compliance with stroke-related standards and requirements.

Stroke is the No. 5 cause of death and a leading cause of adult disability in the United States, according to the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. On average, someone suffers a stroke every 40 seconds; someone dies of a stroke every four minutes; and 795,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year.
