Primary Stroke Center

A stroke is an emergency, and if you or someone you know is experiencing symptoms getting treatment immediately can make a big difference in health outcomes - call 911 immediately. A helpful reminder of the symptoms is to "think F.A.S.T."

F.A.S.T. is the acronym for:

F:   Facial weakness; drooping on one side
A:  Arm numbness/weakness; arm drift
S:   Speech changes; slurring or omission of words
T:   Time of symptom onset; can you receive treatment within three hours

Centra Lynchburg General Hospital was the first hospital in central, southside and western Virginia to earn The Joint Commission's National Certificate of Distinction for Primary Stroke Centers. Centra has since been awarded the Get with the Guidelines, Gold Plus Achievement designation reserved for health systems who achieve higher quality standards.

A dedicated neurological intensive care unit at Centra Lynchburg General Hospital provides specialized nursing technologies for patients recovering from significant head injury or head and neck neurosurgical procedures.
