Medical Services

Acute stroke care begins the moment a patient arrives at the Emergency Department. Our Emergency Department staff is highly skilled and trained in acute stroke care and treatment.

  • If a patient is diagnosed with an acute ischemic stroke and is eligible to receive tPA, our neurologist, pharmacy, and nursing staff will work together to safely administer this “clot busting” drug.
  • Mechanical ThrombectomyPatients who are eligible for clot-retrieval, also known as mechanical thrombectomy, may be transferred to Nebraska Medicine in Omaha where that procedural can be performed. Mechanical thrombectomy is considered the 'gold standard' for treatment in decreasing neurologic damage and disability caused by an ischemic stroke affecting a large blood vessel in brain.
  • Hemorrhagic stroke patients may need transferred to a facility that provides a higher level of care, depending on the severity of the stroke.
  • Once admitted to our stroke unit, the patient will be assessed for rehab services by physical, speech, and occupational therapists.
  • Patients qualifying for acute rehab will be transferred to the MLH Inpatient Rehab Unit when medically cleared.
