Genesys forms free stroke support group

(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) Genesys announces a kick off meeting for a free community stroke support group Thursday, Jan. 7, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m., in the atrium conference room of Genesys Regional Medical Center's Health Park campus.
This group provides an opportunity for stroke survivors and their families to exchange ideas, support and encourage each other, and learn more about their medical condition. Each meeting will include an educational component as well as information on resources available in the local community for stroke survivors.

This support group - now forming - will meet the first Thursday of every month. Genesys Inpatient Rehabilitation Center sponsors the new service.

To obtain more information, or to register for the first meeting, call the Genesys Inpatient Rehabilitation Center at 810-606-6520.

Genesys Regional Medical Center's Health Park campus is located at One Genesys Parkway in Grand Blanc Township (Holly Road exit 108).

Genesys is the only hospital in the area to receive advanced certification from the Joint Commission for its stroke services. This achievement means Genesys has been recognized for its exceptional efforts to foster better outcomes for its stroke patients.

To obtain this advanced certification as a Disease-Specific Care-Advanced Primary Care Stroke Center, Genesys must meet Joint Commission rigorous national standards and safety goals that demonstrate safe, high-quality care, treatment and services for stroke patients, with continued efforts to improve processes.
