Our stroke treatment includes a six-bed unit for stroke patients and dedicated intensive care unit (ICU) beds. Our stroke patients receive round-the-clock care by compassionate and experienced doctors, stroke neurologists, surgeons, radiologists and skilled stroke specialists who have expertise in treating patients who have strokes or other conditions related to the brain and the brain’s blood vessels.
Our patients receive care based on clinical guidelines recognized and respected throughout the world. The results of the care we provide for our patients are called “outcomes.” Outcomes serve as a measurement by which we can track our Stroke Program performance. This helps us to ensure we are performing our best work possible – providing the highest quality of safe care our patients expect and that we expect of ourselves.
98 percent of our IV tPA patients experienced no complications.
In 2016, over half (56 percent) of stroke patients who received IV tPA, discharged with a stroke had a Modified Rankin Score of 2 or less, which means they only had slight disability but were able to look after their own affairs.
In 2016, only 1 out of 25 patients experienced a complication related to carotid endarterectomy.
In 2016, 80% of our stroke patients who received an endovascular procedure (stroke thrombectomy) discharged with a TICI score of 2b or better, which means they had measurable restoration of blood flow to the ischemic area of their brain.
