Primary Stroke Center – Hendrick Medical Center and Hendrick Medical Center South

A stroke occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is either blocked by a clot or bursts. Without oxygen, brain cells begin to die immediately. Hendrick Medical Center and Hendrick Medical Center South are designated Primary Stroke Centers, recognized nationally for meeting the highest standards for treatment of stroke patients. Hendrick Medical Center holds an Advanced Primary Stroke Center designation.

Our specially trained team of physicians, pharmacists, nurses, therapists, and technicians are available around the clock to administer appropriate treatment quickly.
