Stroke Care

CHA Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center has earned the Get With The Guidelines® – Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award and also qualified for recognition on the Target: Stroke Elite Plus Honor Roll. This award recognizes our hospital’s commitment and success in implementing a high standard of stroke care by ensuring that our stroke patients receive treatment that meets nationally accepted, evidence-based standards and recommendations.

Our hospital earned the award by meeting specific quality achievement measures for the diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients at a set level for a designated period. These quality measures are designed to help hospital teams follow the most up-to-date, evidence-based guidelines with the goal of speeding recovery and reducing death and disability for stroke patients.

Priority of Care

It is our goal to provide you with quality emergency medical care. Through a process referred to as “triage,” every patient is initially evaluated by a registered nurse so we may determine the severity of your condition.

There are times when treatment in the Emergency Department may not be given on first-come, first-served basis. There are also times when you may not see patients arrive by ambulance and who require immediate attention. Because our busiest times are not always predictable, waiting times can vary.  Your patience and understanding are appreciated.

Emergency Services are provided to all who present themselves for care regardless of financial status, race, education, nationality, or disability. Patients arrive via walk-in, private ambulance or city rescue ambulances.

We also offer multiple payment options for the amount that is your personal responsibility. Choose the method best suited to your circumstance and contact us to discuss other financing options.

Each physician that provides professional services during your stay will send you a separate bill. This applies to specialists who may have visited you in the hospital or provided services in the Emergency Room as well as anesthesiologists, pathologists and radiologists.
