After a collaborative stakeholder workgroup and best practice research, LERN has established four hospital levels of care as part of Louisiana’s “hub and spoke” model which includes Comprehensive Stroke Center and Primary Stroke Center hubs, and spoke hospitals connected by telemedicine.

Louisiana hospitals were asked to complete an attestation form to describe their stroke level of care
(CSC, TSC, PSC-E, PSC, Acute Stroke Ready Hospital or Stroke Bypass Hospital).
