The Best Treatment for Stroke is Teamwork
Bayfront’s Stroke Alert Team quickly assembles the best healthcare professionals and the latest medical technology. That includes immediate and expert evaluation of symptoms in the emergency department, fast turnaround on lab tests, readily available diagnostic imaging equipment and prompt treatment with medication that dissolves blood clots and interventional neuroradiology. The goal is to stop or minimize damage to the brain as quickly as possible.

Bayfront is certified as a Primary Stroke Center with the Gold Seal of Approval from the Joint Commission and was one of three hospitals to be recognized for excellence in stroke care at the International Stroke Conference in 2007.

A key to our comprehensive stroke program is advance technology available through Bayfront’s Interventional Neuroradiology team, such as aneurysm coiling, stents and angioplasty of intracranial blood vessels.

Post treatment, Bayfront offers a full continuum of care including a dedicated neurology unit for stroke patients, inpatient rehabilitation and outpatient rehab to help patients recovery and return to independent living.

Like a heart attack, every second counts when you or a loved one may be having a stroke. Know the signs and symptoms of stroke so you can respond immediately and get the best care fast.
