cohesive system of stroke care. Guiding principles for the SSR Program are:
Patient-centered care and improving patient care are
the number one priorities.
Continuum of healthcare in North Dakota is
quality-driven, effective and timely.
A role for local community hospitals is maintained to
assure critical access to health care.
