A stroke is brain damage caused by a blocked or bleeding artery in the brain. The American Stroke Association estimates that nearly 800,000 people will suffer a new or recurrent stroke this year.
The St. Elizabeth Stroke Center has received national certification as a Primary Stroke Center by the Joint Commission. This means that we provide quality care to meet the unique and specialized needs of stroke patients.
We provide rapid response in diagnosing and treating stroke patients. Our highly-specialized team collaborates at all stages of treatment using the most advanced research and technology.
At St. Elizabeth, our medical team consists of physicians and medical specialists from the neurosciences, internal medicine, emergency medicine, critical care, as well as respiratory, physical, occupational and speech therapists.
The director of the Stoke Center is Dr. Anthony Cook, a Board Certified Physician. For more information, contact our St. Elizabeth Stroke Center coordinator at (402) 219-7139.
