Hospitals & Programs

The Neurosciences Program of HCA East Florida Hospitals provides state-of-the-art care for people who experience disorders or diseases of the nervous system, which includes the brain, spinal cord and peripheral nerves.

Our staff and physicians are specially trained to treat stroke patients quickly and efficiently. Our neurologists provide medications to help break down blood clots or surgery to remove blood clots. Whatever needs to be done, we’ll do it quickly and precisely. Most of the HCA East Florida Hospitals are certified by the Joint Commission as Primary Stroke Centers.

Technology and Personalized Expert Care

We are proud to say three of our Hospitals have been certified as Comprehensive Stroke Centers by the State Agency for Health Care Administration. This means JFK Medical Center, Aventura Hospital and Westside Regional Medical Center are nationally recognized for providing the highest quality of care for patients diagnosed with stroke. The stroke intervention team routinely meets and surpasses the principles for stroke care by:

  • exceeding the national average of 90 minutes for patients receiving treatment from their arrival at the Emergency Department
  • working with a neuro-interventionist, neurosurgeon and neurologist to assist in identifying key symptoms, diagnosing patients and quickly assessing treatment options to improve patient outcomes
  • Providing stroke-specific care in its Neurosciences Intensive Care Unit outfitted with specially trained nurses and staff
  • Including an all-encompassing post-stroke plan of care.
