STROKE 101 - The University of Alabama at Birmingham has been named a Comprehensive Stroke Center by the Joint Commission and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. UAB met the Joint Commission's standards for Disease-Specific Care Comprehensive Stroke Center Certification. The designation means UAB is part of an elite group of providers recognized as industry leaders and responsible for setting the national agenda in highly specialized stroke care. Comprehensive Stroke Center certification recognizes those hospitals that have the staff, training and infrastructure to receive and treat patients with the most complex strokes. The Joint Commission recognized UAB's advanced imaging capabilities and 24-hour availability of specialized treatments, along with staff who possess the unique education and competencies to care for complex stroke patients. UAB, which is the first hospital with Comprehensive Stroke Center certification in Alabama, has eight expert stroke physicians and the most board-certified vascular neurologists in the state, along with 350 nurses specially trained in stroke care. UAB's Neurosciences Intensive Care Unit is one of the largest in the United States, and UAB Hospital also boasts a dedicated stroke unit. UAB treats over 1,100 strokes a year. A stroke occurs when a blood vessel either is blocked by a clot or bursts, which interrupts blood flow, depriving brain cells of the oxygen and nutrients they need to survive. An American has a stroke every 40 seconds, and someone dies from a stroke every four minutes. Strokes are the fifth-leading cause of death and the leading cause of adult disability in the U.S. For more information on the Joint Commission and American Heart Association's Advanced Certification for Comprehensive Stroke Center, visit jointcommission.org/ or heart.org/myhospital.
