Lee Memorial Health
System has three hospitals certified as a Primary
Stroke Center by The Joint Commission, a nonprofit accreditation
and certification organization that reviews more than 15,000
health systems and programs nationwide.
Lee Memorial Hospital,
Gulf Coast Medical Center and
Cape Coral Hospital are certified stroke centers.
This certification indicates that the hospital provides the
highest level of care for stroke patients.
As a Primary Stroke Center,
these Lee Memorial Health System hospitals are recognized nationally as health
programs that make an extra effort to provide the most
up-to-date care for stroke patients. Primary Stroke Centers also
focus on raising the bar to offer the best possible long-term
outcomes for patients.
Gulf Coast Medical Center has
been named one of America's 100 Best Hospitals for
stroke care in 2014 by Healthgrades.
The Stroke Centers at our hospitals also offer physical therapy, occupational
therapy and speech therapy for patients recovering from stroke.
Family members can also
benefit from our Stroke Club, which meets weekly to allow family
members to share their experiences and find ways to cope
together. For more information about the Stroke Club, call
