Bill to Improve Stroke Care in KY Has Passed!

 

What if a bill could make the difference between life and death or between ability and disability for Kentucky's stroke victims? It can. Senate Bill 10 would ensure Kentucky's stroke victims get the fast treatment they need for the best chance at a full recovery and, thanks to your outreach to lawmakers, was just passed by the legislature!

Kentucky is part of the stroke belt and has higher rates of strokes than many other states. The law will continue the development of a stroke system of care in Kentucky that adds comprehensive stroke centers and acute stroke ready hospitals to the state’s existing Primary Stroke Center designation program.

Timely access to a hospital that has the systems in place to provide this specialty care can often make the difference for stroke victims and their loved ones. Thanks to quick passage of Senate Bill 10 this session, stroke victims in the Commonwealth will have the best chance for quick treatment and a full recovery.
