Memorial Comprehensive Stroke Center
Memorial Comprehensive Stroke Center provides year-round, 24-hour coverage at Memorial Regional Hospital and Memorial Hospital West to guarantee patients are seen by a dedicated stroke neurologist. As a recognized comprehensive stroke center, our stroke specialists in Broward County have the advanced training and resources to provide leading-edge and complex stroke care.
Our stroke centers are staffed by a multidisciplinary stroke team who can administer thrombolytics (clot-dissolving drugs), perform neurointerventional and neurosurgery procedures and offer patients a wide range of rehabilitation services.
With a stroke, every second counts and our team recognizes the importance of early action. When our team is notified by fire rescue that a stroke patient is en route to the hospital, they mobilize and are ready to evaluate and expedite diagnosis and treatment.

Our program received the Get with the Guidelines Stroke Gold Plus Achievement Award from the American Heart/Stroke Association for six consecutive years.
