In an effort to improve the delivery of care for our community, WellStar Health System has partnered with the Mayo Clinic Health System in offering our physicians a new and trusted resource to ensure innovative and leading care for our patients. This partnership embraces the culture and vision of WellStar which is “to deliver world-class healthcare” right here in North Georgia.
WellStar is leading the way in stroke care with an emphasis on quality care. In developing protocols for care at WellStar, physicians have reviewed policies and national data, then took a “patient-first” look at the care model. Measurable outcomes provide the best indicator of quality care. This high-level of care is given by a compassionate clinical team that is dedicated to educating the patient and family and creating a positive experience for stroke patients throughout the recovery process.
