If you or someone you know is worried about the possibility of a stroke, it might help to know an Illinois Valley Hospital is especially qualified to handle them.

OSF Saint Elizabeth Medical Center in Ottawa has been designated an Emergent Stroke Ready Hospital by the Department of Public Health. This title means those who suffer a stroke can now get high quality, possibly lifesaving treatment without leaving LaSalle which is critical because of the time-sensitive nature of stroke care.

The hospital had to meet a number of outcome and treatment goals to get the title. Going forward, they will be have to continue meeting those goals and also receive random inspections by the state.
