Stroke Program

 

In partnership with USC’s Department of Neurology at the prestigious Keck School of Medicine, Dignity Health Glendale Memorial Hospital’s Stroke Program provides patients access to highly specialized neurointerventional procedures and neurosurgery.

 

Recently awarded Primary Stroke Certification by The Joint Commission, Glendale Memorial meets specific criteria and core clinical performance measures specific to accurately diagnosing and treating stroke patients.

The staff consists of a multidisciplinary team of experts: neurologists, neurosurgeons, vascular surgeons, nurse practitioners, and specialists. We deliver coordinated care from stroke prevention and acute stroke treatment to rehabilitation services. The program achieves optimum patient recovery through:

  • Administering intravenous rt-PA, carotid stenting, carotid endarterectomy and craniotomy;
  • Treating transient ischemic attack (TIA), carotid disease, ischemic stroke, and hemorrhagic stroke;
  • Assisting in disease management, risk reduction, and physical, occupational and speech therapy.
  • Providing continued education and resources through a community of stroke survivors and their families. Learn how to reduce the risk of recurrent stroke and live active, satisfying lives through our Stroke Support Group.

Based on Healthgrades 2014 ratings, our hospital is a five-star recipient for Treatment of Stroke. Additionally, we recently received over half a million dollars by the UniHealth Foundation to support the launch and sustainability of an enhanced care coordination program designed to prevent secondary stroke. We've also been designated as a primary stroke center by The Joint Commission and we're an EMS designated stroke center.
