Stroke Care

When you experience stroke symptoms, count on Genesis HealthCare System for timely, expert care that could help save your life.

Recognized for Excellent Stroke Care

Genesis HealthCare System holds Primary Stroke Certification from the Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP). So rest assured that we can stabilize and treat acute stroke, provide acute care, and administer the clot-dissolving medication tPA and other treatments safely and efficiently.

Also, Genesis Hospital received the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get With The Guidelines®Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award. That means you can feel confident you’ll receive the best treatment according to national standards.

Stroke Specialists Available

Telemedicine is a technology enabling you to get faster treatment by specialists. You get 24/7 access to stroke specialists because Genesis Hospital has NeuroCall. The technology enables a neurologist to see, hear and talk to you and your family using video conferencing, which means you may be able to stay close to home for all the stroke care you need. But if you’d benefit from transfer to another hospital, our telemedicine technology lets treatment start sooner, improving your outcome.

Stroke Rehabilitation

After a stroke, neurological rehabilitation helps you regain skills in self-care, mobility and communication. You’ll also learn how to prevent strokes.

Stroke Support Group

Genesis offers a stroke support group to help stroke survivors, family members and caregivers share ideas and learn from others. Read John Gelardo's story to learn more.
