BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The American Heart and Stroke Association honored the San Joaquin Community Hospital Thursday morning for its Accredited Chest Pain Center and Certified Stroke Center.
The center, which was honored with multiple achievement awards, opened in 2008, after the hospital realized the lack of quality stroke care in the area.
The hospital said its the first of its kind to be opened between Los Angeles and San Francisco.
