State Designations

Acute Stroke Ready Hospital

Acute Stroke Ready Hospitals (ASRH) – ASRH are hospitals that can provide emergency stroke care. These hospitals can diagnose, treat, and transport acute stroke patients to a higher level of care as warranted. ASRH hospitals may pursue voluntary designation from the Illinois Department of Public Health by submitting an application and supporting documentation. ASRHs must annually attest their continued compliance to the Illinois Department of Public Health to maintain designation. ASRH hospitals may pursue a national certificate in addition to the Illinois Department of Public Health designation. These hospitals were previously called “Emergent Stroke Ready Hospitals.”
