Working for You

Balancing clinical expertise with compassion.


Neurological Services

At St. Joseph's, our neurological team works together to deliver excellent patient care for an array of neurological disorders and injuries.

Comprehensive Neurological Care

Neurology involves the diagnosis and treatment of injuries and diseases of the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. St. Joseph's team of orthopedic surgeons, neurologists, intensivists, interventional radiologists, oncologists, radiation oncologists, and anesthesiologists understand the importance of balancing clinical expertise with compassion for patients suffering from neurological disorders. Working together with other Dignity Health hospitals, our patients have access to neurosurgeons with advanced expertise.

Our Primary Stroke Center is certified by the Joint Commission and designated by San Joaquin County EMS. We are focused on improving the long term outcome for stroke patients and providing community awareness and education.
