Metro Health is one of a select few hospitals in Michigan to receive a national certificate of distinction as an Advanced Primary Stroke Center from the Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP). Metro Health has been recognized for its exceptional compliance with national standards, clinical guidelines and outcomes of care related to the treatment of stroke.
At the Metro Health Stroke Center, our number one priority is to stop a stroke from permanently damaging a patient’s brain and to minimize potential lifestyle changes. Our multidisciplinary team of physicians and nurses work together to meet the unique and specialized needs of stroke patients. Through our streamlined work processes, we act quickly to reduce the effects from the stroke itself, putting the patient on the best possible road to recovery.
Admittance to the Metro Health’s Stroke Center initiates stroke rehabilitation, education and secondary stroke prevention. Patients are generally admitted through the emergency department and receive their care in the Intensive Care Unit, Progressive Care Unit or on Level Six of Metro Health Hospital.
