As a Primary Stroke Center, Good Samaritan Medical Center has been recognized for its multidisciplinary stroke care and rapid diagnostic and treatment protocols, delivered to patients from emergency treatment through rehabilitation.
Stroke care services start in the ambulance and continue after discharge. Time is of the essence when treating stroke. The faster patients are treated, the better their chances for a complete recovery. Good Samaritan Medical Center's Emergency Department staff work to quickly diagnose stroke and begin treatment within the "three-hour window" in which it is most effective.
Good Samaritan Medical Center's multidisciplinary approach to stroke means our team of health care professionals are specially educated to work quickly to effectively implement the appropriate plan of care.
During a hospital stay, stroke patients receive services such as respiratory care, drug therapy and rehabilitation (physical, occupational and speech therapy) geared to their unique needs.
Good Samaritan Medical Center's Primary Stroke Center is a part of Tenet Florida's Advanced Neuroscience Network, which is an integrated delivery system of medical professionals and hospitals focused on offering a full continuum of neurological care throughout South Florida.
