Stroke Care

During a stroke, every minute matters. The first minutes and hours after stroke symptoms first appear are when certain stroke treatments can be most effective.

Getting the right care at the right time can make a critical difference for treatment and recovery, so you and your family need a collaborative team with both expertise and experience.

At Methodist Hospital, our stroke care has been nationally recognized for excellence and responsiveness. We’re equipped to manage any kind of stroke or stroke complication, earning DNV GL certification as a comprehensive stroke center. That means we’re able to provide you the best, most advanced stroke treatment in our region. Our coordinated team includes emergency doctors, board-certified neurologists, nurses specially trained in stroke care and other stroke experts. Together, we stand ready around-the-clock to quickly assess your stroke symptoms and take action, saving vital time when it’s most important.

Our expertise doesn’t end at immediate stroke care – our onsite rehabilitation program has stroke recovery specialists to help you or your loved one heal and regain independence. Every patient’s stroke rehabilitation and recovery timeline are different. We’ll put together a personalized treatment plan focused on your best possible recovery. And our Stroke INSPIRE program combines community outreach, education and support to bring survivors and their families together.

Outstanding stroke care and rehabilitation is close to home with the stroke center at Methodist Hospital.
