According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, there are several types of disabilities that stroke can cause, from problems walking and balancing to memory disturbances and even paralysis. However, the outlook for stroke patients today is more hopeful than ever due to advances in both stroke treatment and rehabilitation.

Baptist Health physicians and staff work as an interdisciplinary team with the patient and their family to provide the best possible care using evidence-based treatment guidelines, facilitating the patient's return to the community and educating the patient and family to adjust to the diagnosis. This commitment to patient education and outcomes has earned Baptist Health Medical Center-Little Rock the Gold Seal of Approval from the Joint Commission as a Primary Stroke Center of Excellence as well as the Get With the Guidelines-Stroke Gold Plus Achievement Award.
