CoxHealth recognized for advanced stroke care from The Joint Commission
“We are extremely proud of CoxHealth’s neurologists, neurosurgeons, emergency room physicians, radiologists, medical and nursing staff and the entire stroke team for this accomplishment,” says Dr. Richard Jung, medical director of the CoxHealth Stroke Center. “Someone in the U.S. has a stroke every 40 seconds, and stroke is the fourth leading cause of death in Missouri. Maintaining this certification demonstrates CoxHealth’s commitment to the highest levels of safe, high-quality care, treatment and services to our patients,” says Dr. Jung.
The Joint Commission certification is valid for 24 months.
