Amends the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Systems Act. Provides that the Department of Public Health may designate a hospital as an Acute Stroke-Ready Hospital. Provides that a hospital that is certified as an Acute Stroke-Ready Hospital or Comprehensive Stroke Center by a nationally-recognized and Department-approved certifying body may be designated as such by the Department upon receipt of the certification and the payment of an annual fee. Provides that the fees collected for designation shall be used to support stroke care data collection and that any surplus funds from the fees shall be used to support the Department Stroke Coordinator's salary or for other stroke-care initiatives, including administrative oversight of stroke care. Amends the State Finance Act to create the Stroke Data Collection Fund as a special fund in the State treasury. Deletes provisions regarding designation of hospitals as Emergent Stroke-Ready Hospitals. Contains procedures regarding Department designation of Acute Stroke-Ready Hospitals and Comprehensive Stroke Centers.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that beginning on the first day of the month that begins 12 months after the Department of Public Health adopts rules regarding the designation of Acute Stroke-Ready Hospitals, the Department shall attempt to designate hospitals as Acute Stroke-Ready Hospitals. Provides that a hospital that is designated as an Emergent Stroke Ready Hospital at the time that the Department begins designating Acute Stroke-Ready Hospitals shall remain designated as an Emergent Stroke Ready Hospital for the 12 month period until that designation expires. Restores the definition of "Emergent Stroke Ready Hospital". Provides that a hospital may achieve designation as an Emergent Stroke Ready Hospital until the Department begins designating Acute Stroke-Ready Hospitals. Provides that a criterion for designating a hospital as an Acute Stroke-Ready Hospital is the hospital's ability to provide rapid access to an acute stroke team, as defined by the facility, that considers and reflects nationally-recognized, evidence-based protocols or guidelines (instead of the ability to staff an acute stroke team in accordance with national guidelines). Provides that a criterion for designating a hospital as an Acute Stroke-Ready Hospital is the hospital's ability to admit stroke patients to a unit that can provide appropriate care that considers and reflects nationally-recognized, evidence-based protocols or guidelines (instead of stroke unit) or the ability to transfer stroke patients to an Acute Stroke-Ready Hospital, Primary Stroke Center, Comprehensive Stroke Center, or another facility that can provide the appropriate care that considers and reflects nationally-recognized, evidence-based protocols or guidelines. Provides that a criterion for designating a hospital as an Acute Stroke-Ready Hospital is the hospital's ability to designate a Clinical Director of Stroke Care (instead of director of stroke care) and provides criteria for designating a Clinical Director of Stroke Care. Provides that the Department shall develop an "Application for Stroke Center Designation" form (instead of a "Request for Acute Stroke Care Designation" form).
