Stroke Risk Score Card

Find out your stroke risk


Joint Commission Accredited Primary Stroke Receiving Centers

Strokes happen suddenly. It’s important to know the signs and call 911 if you suspect stroke. In Central Florida, Orlando Health stands ready to provide the stroke-specialized care you need. 

Certified for Better Stroke Care

The Joint Commission Accredited and Primary Stroke Receiving Center certification means a hospital meets strict standards associated with best practices and successful outcomes. 

Joint Commission Accredited and Primary Stroke Receiving Centers stabilize patients and give emergency treatments such as clot-busting therapy. Trusted national organizations such as the Joint Commission and the American Stroke Association (ASA) qualify certain hospitals to provide a more advanced level of care. 

If patients have severe conditions or complications, doctors may transfer them to our Comprehensive Stroke Center at Orlando Health Orlando Regional Medical Center for specialized treatment.

High Stroke Care Standards

Joint Commission Accredited Primary Stroke Receiving Centers meet or exceed advanced standards for stroke care.

  • Accreditation and certification standards require:

    • A consistent method of providing care
    • Use of procedures based on current AHA/ASA guidelines
