When you or a loved one is experiencing a stroke, seconds count, so it’s very important that stroke sufferers receive treatment immediately.
The stroke team at HSHS St. Clare Memorial 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 tPA (the clot-busting medicine) to open up the blockage is very time-critical, our team is ready to act quickly.
Supported by local emergency medical services, patients affected by stroke, seizure or other acute needs can get to us fast and safely where we can stabilize and treat as quickly as possible.
