MOORESVILLE, Indiana – Franciscan Health Mooresville has been designated as a Stroke Ready Center by Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP).
It is the only certified stroke center in Morgan County, and only the second facility nationally to receive this certification from HFAP. The certification means the Franciscan Health Mooresville – the only full-service hospital in Morgan County – provides rapid and evidence-based care to acute stroke patients, including the administration of t-PA (blood clot busting medication) in non-hemorrhagic stroke victims.
"This recognition is the result of the hard work by our entire Mooresville stroke team and recognizes our commitment to providing outstanding care to our patients and community," said Annette Seabrook, administrative director of neurosciences.
In Central Indiana, Franciscan Health Indianapolis is a certified Primary Stroke Center and Get With The Guidelines Gold Plus Quality Award winner. Through their commitment to quality, the stroke programs at Franciscan Health Indianapolis and Mooresville have demonstrated improved treatment and better patient outcomes.
