WakeMed is home to two Joint Commission-certified Primary Stroke Centers in Raleigh and Cary, and once again, the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association are honoring these 24/7 dedicated stroke teams with national Get With The Guidelines® awards for the high-quality care they provide to stroke patients.
• WakeMed Cary Hospital – Stroke Gold Plus
• WakeMed Raleigh Campus – Stroke Silver Plus & Target: Stroke Honor Roll
These awards mean that the WakeMed Primary Stroke Centers team – the physicians, nurses, pharmacists, technicians, EMS providers and therapists who care for you – uses the latest proven technology, medications and techniques to help save your life and prevent permanent disabilities that can result from stroke.
