Welcome to the Advanced Primary Stroke Center at Fort Walton Beach Medical Center. Being certified as an Advanced Primary Stroke Center by The Joint Commission since 2008 allows us to offer you expertise in the treatment of stroke care. We are dedicated to promoting the health of patients and members of our community. For you, this means that we will provide you the highest level of stroke care based on national guidelines (Get With The Guidelines) established by the American Heart/Stroke Association.

Currently FWBMC has achieved the Gold Recognition Award from the American Heart Association. The award recognizes FWBMC commitment to success in implementing a higher standard of stroke care based on nationally accepted best practice standards and recommendations. Consistently for 12 months the Stroke Center has demonstrated compliance with stroke core measures.

In certain cases, post stroke rehabilitation is necessary and can also be provided at Fort Walton Beach Medical Center. Both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation is available.

Fort Walton Beach Medical Center is proud to sponsor the Folks with Strokes Support Group. The group is for those who have had a stroke, their family members and those who want to prevent stroke.
