Around-the-clock emergency stroke care
A stroke is a medical emergency in which time is critical. The faster you are taken to an emergency department the better your chance for a positive outcome. Stroke treatment is most effective when started immediately.

Several of our locations are certified primary stroke centers, which means they have received designation from The Joint Commission–an independent national accrediting agency. Our emergency departments are staffed by emergency medicine doctors and nurses who specialize in stroke care and are in the hospital at all times. Additionally, our team includes neurologists, neurointerventional radiologists and neurosurgeons who work closely with emergency staff to deliver lifesaving care.
