Modesto Bee

Doctors Medical Center of Modesto has been designated as a primary stroke center, signaling a concerted effort by the hospital to improve emergency treatment and monitoring for people who have suffered a stroke. The Joint Commission, an organization that accredits hospitals, approved the certification after a review at the Florida Avenue hospital in April. Before it received the designation, the nearest stroke centers were in Fresno, the Bay Area and Sacramento.
