Stroke and Heart Attack Awareness Seminar

Monday, January 23, 2017

NorthPointe Wellness is hosting a Stroke and Heart Attack Awareness seminar, Wednesday, January 25 from 11:30-12:30pm in the Community Education Room at NorthPointe, 5605 East Rockton Road in Roscoe, IL.

Learn the warning signs and what steps you can take for prevention.

Beloit Health System has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Heart-Check mark for Advanced Certification for Primary Stroke Centers. The Gold Seal of Approval® and the Heart-Check mark represent symbols of quality from their respective organizations. 

Beloit Health System underwent a rigorous onsite review in October. Joint Commission experts evaluated compliance with stroke-related standards and requirements, including program management, the delivery of clinical care and performance improvement.

Beloit Health System was first certified as a Primary Stroke Center in 2014.

“Beloit Health System has thoroughly demonstrated the greatest level of commitment to the care of stroke patients through its Advanced Certification for Primary Stroke Centers,” said Wendi J. Roberts, RN, executive director, Certification Programs, The Joint Commission. “We commend Beloit Health System for becoming a leader in stroke care, potentially providing a higher standard of service for stroke patients in its community.”

Stroke is the number four cause of death and a leading cause of adult disability in the United States, according to the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. On average, someone suffers a stroke every 40 seconds; someone dies of a stroke every four minutes; and 795,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year.

This seminar is part of the Wellness Wednesday presentation series held in the Community Education Room at NorthPointe Health and Wellness Campus, 5605 E. Rockton Rd., Roscoe, IL.
