The Stroke Centerat Saint Francis1400 Woodland StHartford, Connecticut 06105
Our Stroke Center is a comprehensive program that has been certified by the Joint Commission as a primary stroke center. The Joint Commission’s certification recognizes Saint Francis as providing exceptional care in meeting the specialized needs of stroke patients.
The statistic is startling, yet very real: one in every three people will suffer from a stroke. Now, Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center is taking a pre-emptive strike against strokes with the creation of The Stroke Center at Saint Francis.
The program was created through the collaboration of combined resources available within the medical center, with the goal of creating a Stroke Center of excellence. The objective is to provide state-of-the-art care to stroke patients. This is reflected in our vision statement as follows:
To achieve this, we have assembled a highly specialized team of physicians from various specialties, who collaborate at all stages towards providing rapid diagnosis, response, and treatment of stroke patients through clinically advanced, leading-edge technology.
Our broad spectrum of diagnostic and therapeutic care of patients with disorders of blood vessels of the brain includes ischemic stroke, transient ischemic stroke, atrial fibrillation, subarachnoid hemorrhage, intracranial hemorrhage, aneurysm, AVM, and AVF.
