Comprehensive Stroke Diagnosis, Treatment and Prevention
The St. Charles Stroke Program is a certified stroke treatment center which excels at acute care during the critical first hours after stroke symptoms emerge. Because rapid response is essential, stroke patients are attended to immediately in our Emergency Department. Stroke care continues at a specialized Stroke Care Unit with surgical and non-surgical procedures, as well as post-stroke therapies, including rehabilitation.
Our multidisciplinary response team includes neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, a neurointerventionalist, rehabilitative specialists and an RN stroke coordinator.
The St. Charles Stroke Program adheres to the highest standard of care and was recognized with the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association Silver Plus Achievement Award in 2015. In 2012, the stroke program also received Primary Stroke Center Certification from the Joint Commission.
The mission of the St. Charles Stroke Program is to improve outcomes for stroke survivors by using early intervention, evidence-based practice and a multidisciplinary approach toward stroke recovery.
Our stroke coordinators make certain that every stroke patient at St. Charles receives all the steps of care appropriate for their specific diagnosis, customized education that begins upon admission and preparation for the transition from hospital to home, rehab or skilled nursing facility.
