Regions Hospital First in Minnesota to be Named a Certified Comprehensive Stroke Center by the Joint Commission

Regions Hospital is the first hospital in Minnesota to be certified as a Comprehensive Stroke Center by the Joint Commission and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. Regions, which is part of the HealthPartners family of health care companies, is one of three hospitals in five area states and one of only 65 hospitals nationally to achieve this designation.

This level of certification was launched by the Joint Commission in September 2012 in an effort to recognize hospitals that have specific abilities to receive and treat the most complex stroke cases.
