Certified Primary Stroke Center
Lancaster General Hospital is a Certified Primary Stroke Center
Stroke, or brain attack, is a leading cause of death and disability among U.S. adults. The effects of stroke may hardly be noticeable, or last a lifetime. Symptoms may be well defined, like weakness on one side of the face and body; or subtle, like changes in speech. Recovery may be complete, partial or minimal. Spotting the signs of a stroke and getting help quickly are crucial to limiting brain damage. Time is brain.
As a Joint Commission-Certified Primary Stroke Center, Lancaster General Hospital is recognized nationally for our ability to provide the highest quality stroke care, leading to the best possible outcomes.
Stroke symptoms and treatment are often complex. Our highly trained team of neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuropsychologists, cardiologists, radiologists and interventional radiologists, physiatrists, nurses, nurse care managers, and neuro rehab specialists work together to tailor care to each patient’s individual symptoms, needs, and abilities.
