We’re not just good at treating a stroke. We’re FAST, too.
The most important number in treating a stroke patient is time.
As well as offering efficient, high-quality emergency treatment for a wide range of medical conditions, our emergency room is also a designated Primary Stroke Center by the Joint Commission. This means our doctors have the specialized equipment and proven skills to provide first-response care for stroke victims. Within minutes of arriving at Hialeah Hospital, we can diagnose strokes as either ischemic or hemorrhagic and then provide fast treatment that prevents clots from causing any further damage.

A designation that matters
A lot of hospital designations and awards for hospitals don’t mean much for the patient. But the Primary Stroke Center designation has real-world implications for you. We are proud to be recognized as a leader in stroke treatment.
