Taylorville Memorial Hospital has once again received the distinction of being an “Acute Stroke Ready Hospital.” The hospital has met and exceeded guidelines set by the Illinois Department of Public Health for the designation.
Kristy Cesaretti is the Emergency Room Nurse Manager at the hospital. She says this distinction means the hospital can provide some of the best care necessary for when someone has a stroke.
Cesaretti says it is a team effort throughout the hospital to make this care possible.
The designation is a three-year designation. The hospital received the designation for the first time in 2014.
