Comprehensive Stroke Center

Combining excellence and speed in stroke care

In stroke care, it’s not just how well you treat a patient, but also how fast.

We have a Joint Commission Certified Comprehensive Stroke Center.

What’s that mean for you? Our doctors have the specialized equipment and proven skills to provide first-response care for stroke victims. Within minutes of arriving at Palmetto General Hospital, we can diagnose strokes as either ischemic or hemorrhagic and then provide fast treatment that prevents clots from causing any further damage.

A designation that matters

This designation has real-world implications for you. When it comes to stroke, good enough doesn’t cut it, and that’s why we’re proud to be recognized as a leader in stroke treatment.

Stroke Survivor: Sabrina

Having a stroke at age 21 is an unusual—and frightening—prospect. First responders recommended the Palmetto General ER, and our doctors went to work via a FaceTime call before she even arrived at our door.
