Stroke is the nation's third leading cause of death, and the leading cause of serious, long-term disability in the United States.

Reston Hospital Center's commitment to providing outstanding stroke care has earned us The Joint Commission's Gold Seal of Approval for certification as a Primary Stroke Center. This means residents of Fairfax and Loudoun counties have access to better, faster treatment–especially important because, when it comes to stroke, "time is brain."

What is an Accredited Stroke Center?

Our Primary Stroke Center accreditation is more than a certificate on a wall. It's a designation by The Joint Commission, an independent not-for-profit organization that accredits and certifies healthcare organizations in the U.S. with the mission to continuously improve healthcare. This designation recognizes exceptional efforts like ours to produce better outcomes for you in stroke care.
