The mission of the Martha Jefferson Hospital Stroke Center is to provide timely access to optimal, evidence-based, standardized care which reduces the risk and burden of stroke through prevention, detection, intervention and education for our patients and the surrounding community.
We take a multi-disciplinary approach to the care of all stroke and TIA patients: working closely with neurologists, critical care physicians, nurses, inpatient therapists and case management. Additionally, our stroke unit staffs receive year round stroke-specific education to ensure that you receive the best evidenced care available.
