Advanced Primary Stroke Center

When a stroke occurs, there are five Advanced Primary Stroke Centers in the VHS system where you can receive care. These sites have all been certified as Advanced Primary Stroke Centers by The Joint Commission. This recognizes centers that make exceptional efforts to foster better outcomes for stroke care.

The stroke response teams at our facilities can quickly assess your condition and begin the treatment you need. We are dedicated to providing effective, evidenced-based practice for all patients experiencing a stroke or stroke-type symptoms. Treatments are available that can help minimize the damage caused by stroke, but you need to get treatment as quickly as possible.
