Mid Coast Hospital Again Recognized for Advanced Stroke Care

The Joint Commission—in conjunction with the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association—has recertified Mid Coast Hospital with Advanced Certification for Primary Stroke Centers.

The certification demonstrates the hospital’s ability to provide the highest level of care to ensure the best possible outcome.

Mid Coast Hospital was first recognized as a Primary Stroke Center in 2012 and undergoes rigorous onsite reviews every two years. At the most recent review in August 2018, the Joint Commission evaluated compliance with stroke-related standards and requirements, including program management, the delivery of clinical care, and performance improvement.

The certification provides Mid Coast Hospital with the opportunity to highlight the exceptional stroke care available here, as well as its strong clinical affiliation with Maine Medical Center, providing consultations, shared resources and knowledge, and expedited access for tertiary care when needed.

Maine Medical Center is the only hospital in Maine certified as a Comprehensive Stroke Center—the highest level of stroke certification a hospital can receive.

Mid Coast Hospital encourages people to learn the risk factors associated with stroke, recognize the warning signs and symptoms, and on first sign of a stroke, dial 9-1-1 immediately.

New and effective treatments have been developed to treat and minimize the severity and damaging effect of strokes when administered in the early hours. Our community can feel comforted knowing that Mid Coast Hospital provides high-level care for stroke patients right here, close to home.
