Providence Holy Cross is one of an elite group of U.S. hospitals certified by The Joint Commission as a Comprehensive Stroke Center. This means we deliver the highest level of stroke care. We follow clinically recognized best practices to fast-track patients who have stroke symptoms. This helps them receive brain- and lifesaving treatments as quickly as possible.
Our stroke team includes vascular neurologists, neurosurgeons, neurointerventionalists, radiologists, emergency physicians, nurses and therapists. From diagnosis to treatment and recovery, we provide advanced care for every stage of stroke.
If you or someone you know has a stroke, faster care can mean a better outcome. That's why Providence is working to bring the most advanced stroke care to communities through a telestroke program.
The Providence Telestroke Network provides access to some of the region's top stroke specialists 24 hours a day. Through a secure two-way video system, Providence neurologists can be "in the room" with you, your family and your local physicians, helping to determine the best treatment for you. This means you can receive the most effective treatments right in your community, near your family and friends.
