When a stroke occurs, every minute is critical to survival and recovery. Which is why Adventist Health St. Helena (AHSH) acquired the training and expertise necessary to receive Advanced Primary Stroke Center certification on June 11, 2021 by The Joint Commission, the premier hospital accrediting organization.
AHSH is the only Advanced Primary Stroke Center in upper Napa Valley, and the only one in Napa County to have:
- A Stroke Program Concierge Nurse who supports stroke patients and their families during treatment, recovery and beyond
- Care provided by neurologists from UCSF—one of the top three neurology programs in the US—through teleneurology as well as direct helicopter access for patient transfers
But our work is not done… to ensure you, your loved ones and neighbors have access to the best possible stroke care in our own community, our next challenge is acquiring a state-of-the-art CT scanner. This vital piece of technology will benefit thousands of patients, offering leading-edge applications for stroke, cancer, joint and cardiovascular programs.
Please give today to ensure our community has access to premier stroke prevention and treatment.
