At HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital, we recognize the importance of time when a stroke occurs. A stroke attacks your brain, so the more time that’s wasted during a stroke, the more brain you’ll lose. You could even lose your life.
Our team of stroke care professionals, neurologists and telemedicine specialists are qualified and prepared to help you during those crucial moments. Within seconds of arriving to our emergency department, patients with stroke symptoms go immediately to the radiology department for a CT scan and receive an evaluation that results in a quick diagnosis and course of treatment. As your recovery process begins, we develop an individualized treatment plan to help you on the road to recovery.
