MDH renews GRHS’ stroke-ready status

Glencoe Regional Health Services’ (GRHS) designation as an Acute Stroke Ready Hospital was recently renewed by the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH). This three-year designation certifies that GRHS is equipped to evaluate, stabilize and provide life-saving emergency care to patients with acute stroke symptoms.
“We are very proud of our ability to confirm a stroke diagnosis and start treatment with clot-busting medication in under an hour,” said James Jessen, GRHS emergency services physician. “Every minute counts when you are trying to preserve brain cells.”
For more about the designation, see the March 7 print edition of The Chronicle.
