Our Stroke Outcomes

Our team is skilled in achieving the best possible outcomes for each of our patients. Simply put, this information reflects our dedication to providing the highest level of care to treat all types of stroke, including those that are very complex.

These outcomes are a compilation of a wide range of information. For instance, did the patients survive their procedures or treatments? Were our patients satisfied with their care? Were there any complications as a result of their care? These key points reflect our abilities – as well as any other health care system – to produce the results that patients and health care providers should expect.
