  • Chronic headaches
  • Dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease
  • Epilepsy
  • Multiple sclerosis

BID-Milton is certified as a primary stroke service by the state Department of Public Health. This means the hospital has the medical expertise, diagnostic equipment and treatment protocols in place to treat emergency stroke patients around-the-clock.
