King’s Daughters has once again received certification as an Advanced
Primary Stroke Center from The Joint Commission, based on the results
of an onsite survey in October.
King’s Daughters stroke program has been continuously certified since
2010. Interventional radiologist Wes Lewis, M.D., leads the stroke program.
Also participating in The Joint Commission accreditation visit were Megan
Rudinsky, D.O., neurologist; Stacy Caudill, M.D., hospitalist; Stacy Patrick,
chief nursing officer; Mona Thompson, chief compliance officer; Jason
Blevins, ED director; Polly Hunt, stroke program coordinator; and Ryan
Ison, service line director.
The mission of our stroke program is to reduce the risk and morbidity of
cerebrovascular disease through multidisciplinary efforts in education,
prevention, diagnosis, rapid response, evidence-based treatment and rehabilitation.
