Stroke Care

Why Abrazo?

Stroke Care at Abrazo Healthcare, in Arizona

Abrazo Health is nationally recognized for its exemplary stroke care. With four of our hospitals designated as Certified Primary Stroke Centers by major accrediting organizations, we are dedicated to offering a level of care that meets or exceeds stroke care standards and recommendations.

Certified Primary Stroke Centers:

Stroke and Neurological Disorders

In treating stroke and other neurological disorders, such as seizures and accident-related head and spinal cord injuries, every minute counts. As soon as symptoms arise, getting to an Emergency Department is critical. Phoenix Baptist Hospital’s Neurology center has the expertise to quickly and competently care for patients.

With a shortage of Neurological services in Arizona, Phoenix Baptist Hospital is committed to expanding its services to help patients state-wide. Previously, some patients had to go out of state to receive care. The program will save lives and prevent long-term damage to patients who need immediate neurological care.
