Primary Stroke Center

Joint Commission Accreditation

The Primary Stroke Center follows guidelines set forth by the American Stroke Association and The Joint Commission. St. Lucie Medical Center has developed and implemented innovative approaches to advance acute treatment, recovery and rehabilitation for stroke patients in accordance with evidence-based practice.

The interdisciplinary approach for stroke care includes an expert team of emergency medicine personnel, nurses, laboratory staff, neurologists, neurosurgeons and radiologists, who have all received special training as a stroke care team.

Chest Pain Center

Chest Pain Center

The Chest Pain Center is the first and only one on the Treasure Coast to receive full accreditation by the Society of Chest Pain Centers. The goal of the Society of Chest Pain Centers is to significantly reduce the mortality rate of patients with chest pain by teaching the public to recognize and react to early symptoms of a possible heart attack, reducing the time it takes to receive treatment and increasing accuracy and effectiveness of treatment. The Chest Pain Center at St. Lucie Medical Center has demonstrated expertise and commitment to quality patient care by meeting or exceeding a wide range of criteria and completing on-site evaluations by a review team from the Society of Chest Pain Centers.

In addition to a full range of Emergency Services, St. Lucie Medical Center also offers Fast Track Services between the hours of 10:00am - 10:00pm to handle less urgent cases. Fast Track Services is a special area in the ER designed to get you treated and out without slowing down the care to more critically ill patients.
