Time is Brain
On average, every 40 seconds someone in the United States suffers a stroke. It is the third leading cause of death and the number one cause of long-term disability. Where you are treated first can make a difference. Carondelet’s Primary Stroke Center
teams are available 24/7 at the Carondelet Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital, and at St. Mary’s Hospital.
Primary Stroke Center Certification
The Joint Commission's Certificate of Distinction for Primary Stroke Centers recognizes centers that make exceptional efforts to foster better outcomes for stroke care. Achievement of certification signifies that the services our hospitals provide have
the critical elements to achieve long-term success in improving outcomes. It is the best signal to the Southern Arizona community that the quality care provided at Carondelet Health Network is effectively managed to meet the unique and specialized
needs of stroke patients.
Stroke is one of the nation’s leading causes of death and the major cause of serious, long-term disability.
The Carondelet Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital offers:
A dedicated neurological critical-care unit
A state-of-the-art, angio suite for conducting minimally invasive vascular and endovascular procedures
Long-term outpatient care, including rehabilitation
Neurological Critical Care
The critical-care unit is staffed by a neurointensivist – a physician who takes a team approach in working closely with surgeons, radiologists, ER staff, pharmacists, rehabilitation therapists and other care providers in neurologic emergencies.
Multiple studies have shown that the outcome for patients with critical neurological conditions – such as acute ischemic stroke, aneurysm and hemorrhage – is significantly better when they are cared for by a neurointensivist.
Neurointervention allows doctors to use highly specialized techniques, where possible, to avoid conventional open surgery of the brain and spine. It has become essential for comprehensive stroke care.
