BRUNSWICK, Maine -- The Joint Commission, in conjunction with The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, has recognized Mid Coast Hospital with Advanced Certification for Primary Stroke Centers. The certification demonstrates the hospital's ability to provide the most appropriate, evidence-based stroke care a community hospital can offer its patients. Mid Coast is one of only four hospitals in Maine that has achieved this status.

Joint Commission surveyors visited Mid Coast Hospital in June to conduct a thorough on-site evaluation that included eight standard performance measures and an in-depth review of staff and program indicators. The nonprofit hospital received notification in early July that it is now certified as an advanced primary stroke center.

The Mid Coast team includes four on-staff neurologists that treat a full range of neurological conditions. Among the hospital's new services for stroke patients is the "telestroke" system that serves to augment the availability of a staff neurologist, providing immediate off-site evaluation when needed. This program is offered through a joint partnership with Maine Medical Center, another of Maine's Primary Stroke Centers.
