CCM Health Attains Acute Stroke Ready Hospital Designation by Minnesota Department of Health

CCM Health proudly announced that it was awarded the Acute Stroke Ready Hospital Designation by the Minnesota Department of Health on Thursday, November 30, 2023. This prestigious recognition affirms CCM Health’s commitment to providing excellent stroke care and meeting the rigorous criteria set forth by health authorities. 

Acute Stroke Ready Hospitals, such as CCM Health, are certified to deliver immediate and life-saving interventions for stroke patients, including vital medications. Furthermore, these hospitals are equipped to facilitate the swift transfer of patients to primary or comprehensive stroke centers for continued care. 

“This designation underscores our dedication to ensuring the best possible outcomes for stroke patients,” shared Patricia Frank MSN, RN, FACHE, Chief Nursing/Operating Officer at CCM Health. “We have met all the necessary benchmarks to provide timely and effective care during critical moments.” 

Stroke stands as the fifth leading cause of death and a major contributor to disability in Minnesota. The Minnesota Stroke Program actively works towards reducing the impact of stroke by enhancing community awareness, offering continuous education for healthcare providers, and refining the overall system of care for stroke patients. 

With this in mind, it is crucial for Minnesotans to be well-informed about recognizing the signs of a stroke promptly. Remembering to B.E. F.A.S.T. — Balance loss, Eyesight changes, Facial droop/numbness, Arm weakness, Speech difficulty, and Time to call 9-1-1 — can make a significant difference in the outcome of a stroke.
