TVRH receives certification for primary stroke center

Written by Healthy Living

The Villages Regional Hospital was awarded certification by The Joint Commission as a primary stroke center, which means the hospital provides the next generation of stroke care and maintains high standards of The Joint Commission.
“I am extremely pleased with the excellent outcome of this survey,” says Don Henderson, president and chief executive officer of Central Florida Health, the parent company of The Villages Regional Hospital. “This impressive result is due to the hard work and dedication of the many team members that commit to maintain these important standards.”
Receiving medical attention as early as possible following a stroke—within the first three hours—can mean the difference not only between life and death, but also between complete recovery and lifetime disability.
