HCA Gets Stroke Designation

When a stroke happens, time is of the essence. There are only hours in which to administer critical medication, which is why having a hospital with stroke designation is critical. HCA Houston Healthcare Pearland, formerly known as the Pearland Medical Center and located at 11100 Shadow Creek Parkway, Pearland, received a Primary Stroke Center designation in early February, meaning the hospital’s stroke care meets industry standards. This designation is helpful to emergency medical services, as EMS services send patients to the nearest primary stroke center when possible.
