With board certified neurologists and neurosurgeons on staff, and a telemedicine partnership with Houston's Methodist Hospital, we are the area's only Joint Commission Certified Primary Care Stroke Center and recently received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award. Additionally, we are a regional cardiovascular care center affiliated with the Methodist-DeBakey Heart Center in Houston. With designated cardiovascular surgical suites and catheterization labs, we are the area leader in heart health, earning the Get With The Guidelines®–Heart Failure Gold Quality Achievement Award from the American Heart Association. Also in 2009, we opened a new 24-bed intensive care unit and 26-bed progressive care wing. These new units offer the latest in technology, patient safety and comfort. Plus, they are staffed by a highly qualified team of physicians and nurses who are consistently recognized nationally for excellence in patient care. Other centers of excellence include the Polk Education Center for Stroke, Diabetes and Heart Care. This facility enhances the lives of adults and children with its comprehensive inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation centers. And when it comes to the birth of a new baby or pediatric care, the Henderson Women's and Children's Center offers the latest in technology and comfort.
