Beebe Medical Center has received re-certification from the Joint Commission as an Advanced Primary Stroke Center.
The re-certification means that Beebe Medical Center is ready and able to treat patients with stroke 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Beebe Medical Center's stroke program assures that all hospital employees are trained to recognize the signs of stroke and to know what action they must take if someone is presenting symptoms. In 2011, Beebe Medical Center's efforts were recognized when it received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association's Stroke Gold Performance Achievement Award.
