Our team of neurologists, neurosurgeons, nurses and dedicated stroke coordinators are ready to care for stroke patients 24/7. Our treatment options use the latest diagnostic equipment to identify and treat the cause of a stroke and identify risk factors that could cause another stroke.

Several Catholic Health hospitals also use telestroke video technology to allow stroke neurologists quicker access to diagnose patients and prescribe life-saving treatments.
