Our hospital is certified by the Joint
Commission as a Primary Stroke Center.
Evidence-based protocols are followed which can
significantly improve outcomes. For our

time from onset of symptoms to diagnosis and
treatment. And a neurologist is available to
conduct evaluations and use clot-busting
medications when appropriate. Riddle Hospital
