When a stroke strikes, we're ready
HSHS St. Vincent Hospital and the stroke care team focuses on five main areas for our stroke patients: speed, support, expertise, innovation and empathy.
Speed. Efficient, streamlined processes and equipment help us manage stroke patients quickly, so long-term effects are minimized and outcomes improved as much as possible.
Support. Programs like BE-FAST for stroke signs and symptoms, stroke screenings, support groups, customized educational materials, resources and consultations help people know when they’re having a stroke and how they can take steps to reduce their risk factors.
Expertise. Our multidisciplinary teams, in partnership with Prevea Health, offers the highest quality in stroke care and rehabilitation, including neurointerventional radiologist, neurologists, radiologists, diagnostic technicians, neurology specialty-trained nurses, certified neuroscience registered nurses within the ICU, case managers, outpatient therapists, neuropsychologists and behavioral care therapists.
Innovation. Our investment in stroke treatment includes an accredited EEG lab for diagnosis, the area’s largest inpatient stroke rehab unit located inside HSHS St. Vincent Hospital, advanced clot-removal technologies and much more. All in Green Bay.
Empathy. Guided by our Franciscan spirituality and core values of respect, care, competence and joy, stroke sufferers can be assured treatment comes from those who take a sincere interest in their lives.
