The Stroke Program at Regional West
Regional West’s Stroke Program is designed to provide evidence based primary stroke care, including evaluation, treatment, and education to patients who present or are transferred with signs and symptoms of stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA). The delivery of stroke care is based upon an interdisciplinary team approach. The Leadership Team and the Stroke Committee are actively involved in the stroke program to help all patients receive exceptional, innovative stroke care.
Physicians, advanced practice providers, and nurses provide acute stroke care services 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Skilled therapies are provided by an interdisciplinary team Monday through Friday and weekends as needed. The care team delivers care based upon nationally recognized clinical practice standards as recommended by the Joint Commission and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.
Regional West is certified by The Joint Commission as a Primary Stroke Center.
