When you or a loved one is experiencing a stroke, seconds count, so it’s very important that stroke sufferers receive treatment immediately.
HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital Medical Center is home to a specialty trained stroke team that provides rapid access to customized care with expertise and written care protocols. When a blocked blood vessel in the brain causes a stroke, our team is ready to act quickly, treating eligible patients with tPA (the clot-busting medicine) to open the blockage.
HSHS St. Mary’s Hospital Medical Center is a Certified Primary Stroke Center and a leader in stroke care. As a Joint Commission stroke center, our team meets or exceeds quality measures for stroke, including average door-to-stroke treatment time of less than 60 minutes. Patients affected by stroke, seizure or other acute needs can get to us quickly and safely via local emergency medical services—helping our team stabilize and treat them as soon as possible.
