Stroke

State-of-the-art care from the earliest phase


The Comprehensive Stroke Center offers a 20 bed acute stroke care unit with a dedicated Magnet nursing staff.  The unit features 24 hour testing and monitoring to detect and minimize conditions as soon as they develop, in order to minimize complications whenever possible. The acute stroke team provides state-of-the-art comprehensive care in the early phase of stroke beginning in our Emergency Trauma Department.  After a patient progresses through the acute phase of stroke, a broad range of outpatient rehabilitation services are available including physical therapy, speech therapy and occupational therapy.
