9 hospitals in SE Mich. form stroke care network

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) — Nine hospitals in southeast Michigan are forming a network that aims to improve all types of stroke care.

Michigan StrokeNet is funded by the National Institutes of Health, which announced the founding of 25 such networks across the country.

The University of Michigan Health System says it's the hub for the network in Michigan, which includes five hospitals with the Detroit Medical Center and two hospitals with Trinity Health. Two hospitals at the University of Michigan are involved in the effort.

Plans announced Friday call for the effort to address prevention, treatment and recovery through research. Other Michigan hospitals could be added later.
