Aventura Hospital and Medical Center is proud to welcome Dr. Jonathan Cross to the Board of Trustees. Dr. Cross has been member of the medical staff of Aventura Hospital and Medical Center since 2000. He is actively involved in our Stroke Center program, which was recently awarded the American Stroke Association’s Get With the Guidelines – Stroke (GWTG-Stroke) Gold Plus Performance Achievement Award. The award recognizes Aventura Hospital’s commitment and success in implementing a higher standard of stroke care by ensuring that stroke patients receive treatment according to nationally accepted standards and recommendations. In addition to his expertise as a caregiver, Dr. Cross participates in the orientation and training of new nurses at Aventura Hospital and was instrumental in helping to bring the Arctic Sun to Aventura Hospital, which is used to rapidly cool the body temperature for high risk heart attack and stroke patients in order to preserve normal baseline brain activity.
“We are delighted to have Dr. Cross join our Board of Trustees,” said Heather Rohan, Chief Executive Officer of Aventura Hospital and Medical Center, “He displays all the qualities of a true leader. He is a skilled communicator as well as a caring and compassionate medical professional to patients, family and to staff.”
Dr. Jonathan Cross is certified by the American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology. He completed his Residency and Fellowship in Neurology at the University of Miami’s Jackson Memorial Medical School in Miami, Florida.
