Research Driven Care

Research from the American Stroke Association shows that patients at a Primary Stroke Center receive a higher level of care with fewer complications, spending less time in the hospital and rehabilitation. Treatment in a Primary Stroke Center provides a safer environment, resulting in better patient outcomes.
