When Stroke Happens, Minutes Matter
At HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital, stroke patients are placed in the hands of a specialty trained stroke team with immediate access to advanced treatments and stroke experts from across the country, with Telestroke.
HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital is a Certified Primary Stroke Center. As a Joint Commission stroke center, our team meets or exceeds quality measures. The specially trained stroke team at HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital provides rapid access to care with specialty expertise and written care protocols to provide individualized attention for patients. When a stroke occurs because of a blocked blood vessel in the brain, treatment for eligible patients with a clot-busting medicine to open up the blockage is very time-critical, our team is ready to act quickly.
