"KUAH is continuing its efforts for the patient's health by improving the emergency medical system and deploying professional personnel for 24 hours to treat and prevent stroke," Professor Jung Jin-man of the Department of Neurology at KUAH said. "Through consistent efforts, we could keep the first grade of acute stroke adequacy rating so far. This means that patients with stroke can receive quality treatment at KUAH."
