Stroke is a common, often-devastating medical condition in which vital brain functions can be lost in a moment. Prevention of stroke, management of acute stroke, and rehabilitation of the stroke patient are complex and difficult problems requiring the expertise of trained professionals working in a supportive hospital environment.
The Stroke Program of the John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County is a collaboration of physicians, nurses, therapists and administrators working together to provide the best possible care to the patient with stroke, in a state-of-the-art facility that provides CT and MRI imaging, angiography, complete laboratory services, conventional and intensive care beds, and every manner of surgical procedure in our operating rooms.
We treat over 400 patients each year with acute stroke and many more with chronic problems associated with stroke. Since 2008, the Hospital has maintained its certification by The Joint Commission, exceeding all national performance measures.
