Our team of neurologists, neurosurgeons, nurses and dedicated stroke coordinators are ready to care for stroke patients 24/7. Our treatment options use the latest diagnostic equipment to identify and treat the cause of a stroke and identify risk factors that could cause another stroke.

Several CHS hospitals also use telestroke video technology to allow stroke neurologists quicker access to diagnose patients and prescribe life-saving treatments.
