Stroke & Cerebrovascular Care

A stroke occurs when a blood vessel, carrying oxygen and nutrients to the brain, is either blocked by a clot or bursts. It is a life-threatening emergency as brain cells rapidly begin to die. Quick intervention is vital. Stroke can happen to anyone at any time, regardless of race, gender or age.

Advanced Stroke Treatment

Strokes are preventable and treatable. It is estimated that 80 percent of strokes are preventable by controlling risk factors such as smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. While prevention remains the best treatment, the development of new drugs and devices have allowed us to offer the most minimally invasive treatment options in the area. Thanks to cutting-edge technology and state-of-the-art facilities, our physicians and clinicians are helping to save lives and preserve quality of life for residents of North Florida and South Georgia with:

  • Each of our hospital emergency centers is equipped with tele-neurology capabilities for 24/7 consultations by a Baptist Neurologist.

  • Our primary stroke centers have the technology and expertise for immediate diagnosis and care, using national protocols.

  • We measure “door-to-intervention” times to help ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients.

  • Our Stroke Transfer Center expedites the transfer of time-sensitive patients to our new Stroke & Cerebrovascular Center when advanced treatment is required.

  • At our Stroke & Cerebrovascular Center, multidisciplinary teams work together to provide care using state-of-the-art, minimally invasive technology.

  • This capability means local residents don’t have to leave the area to receive the life-saving care they need.
