Pana Community Hospital has received its designation as an Emergent Stroke Ready Hospital (ESRH) from the Illinois Department of Public Health. In 2009, the Illinois General Assembly passed MB2244, requiring the creation of stroke systems of care in Illinois. The law identifies hospitals capable of providing emergent stroke care and directs EMS (ambulance services) to transport possible acute stroke patients to these hospitals. If, however, the closest hospital has not received its Emergent Stroke Ready Hospital designation, EMS personnel may divert that patient to the next closest designated hospital.
