United Memorial Medical Center in Batavia has received designation as a Stroke Center from the New York State Department of Health.
By meeting the criteria established by the state, the designation is a testament to the strength of collaboration between United Memorial’s stroke program and emergency medicine, and to the excellence of the entire stroke team.
The Department of Health’s on-site visit on March 31 found no deficiencies and validated that the hospital is fully prepared to operate as a Stroke Center.
As a Stroke Center, United Memorial will continue to improve the quality of care available to stroke patients and to implement best practice standards.
