Lee Memorial Health
System has two hospitals certified as a Primary
Stroke Center by The Joint Commission, a nonprofit accreditation
and certification organization that reviews more than 15,000
health systems and programs nationwide.
Lee Memorial Hospital and
Gulf Coast Medical Center are both certified stroke centers.
This certification indicates that the hospital provides the
highest level of care for stroke patients.
As a Primary Stroke Center,
these LMHS hospitals are recognized nationally as health
programs that make an extra effort to provide the most
up-to-date care for stroke patients. Primary Stroke Centers also
focus on raising the bar to offer the best possible long-term
outcomes for patients.
Lee Memorial Hospital has
been named one of Thompson Healthcare's 100 Top Hospitals for
excellence in treatment of stroke.
The Stroke Centers at our hospitals also offer physical therapy, occupational
therapy and speech therapy for patients recovering from stroke.
Family members can also
benefit from our Stroke Club, which meets weekly to allow family
members to share their experiences and find ways to cope
together. For more information about the Stroke Club, call
