Providence St. Mary Medical Center in Apple Valley Ranked Among Best for Stroke Care

As mentioned in the Victorville Daily Press, May 23, 2022, Providence St. Mary Medical Center in Apple Valley recently announced a third-place ranking for best stroke care among 100 hospitals in California. The report came from an analysis released by Healthgrades, the leading resource connecting consumers, physicians and health systems. Additionally, Healthgrades recently recognized St. Mary as one of the best hospitals in the U.S. for stroke care for the second year in a row. For the state-ranking analysis, Healthgrades evaluated clinical performance for nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide, focusing on eight key specialties across a mix of chronic, urgent and planned clinical areas, the company said. Providence St. Mary has operated as the only Primary Stroke Center in the High Desert since 2017. The hospital became a Stroke Receiving Center — also the only one locally — the following year. As a Primary Stroke Center accredited by the Joint Commission and certificated by the American Heart Association, St. Mary has an acute stroke team and a neurologist accessible 24 hours a day, seven days a week, allowing for immediate response when a stroke is suspected.
