CHI St. Joseph Health Madison Hospital Earns Reaccredited as Level 3 Stroke Support Facility

Madisonville, TX, September 9, 2019—CHI St. Joseph Health Madison Hospital recently earned reaccreditation through the Texas EMS Trauma & Acute Care Foundation (TETAF) as a Level 3 Stroke Support Facility, receiving no deficiencies.

A Stroke Support Facility provides resuscitation, stabilization and assessment of stroke victims and either provides treatment or arranges for immediate transfer to a higher level of stroke care, such as Regional Hospital. It also provides ongoing educational opportunities in stroke-related topics for health care professionals and the public and implements stroke prevention programs.

All CHI St. Joseph Health Critical Access Hospitals are credentialed as Stroke Support Facilities, with a stroke coordinator who oversees the stroke program and ensures that Joint Commission and state-defined timeframes for lab work, imaging, medications and other care components are met.

“This reaccreditation speaks to our team’s commitment to the highest standards for stroke care,” said Madison Hospital Director Erin Marietta. “Our team works together seamlessly to provide the expert care our patients need.”
