Missouri Stroke Center

MU's Comprehensive Stroke program is a new multi-disciplinary approach for treating any types of strokes or stroke related illnesses. "TIME LOSS IS BRAIN LOSS" for any stroke victim. Our comprehensive program allows us to provide care timely, efficiently and strives for the best outcome for the patient. In addition to having several key clinical programs on site, 24/7, with the most current, state of the art protocols and equipment for treatment, we offer many ancillary clinical and non-clinical services to patients and their families during the hospital stay under one facility.

University of Missouri Health System has assembled multidisciplinary stroke team in order to provide comprehensive stroke care to our patients from acute stroke presentation to rehabilitation. MU's stroke program was rated "Gold Plus" by the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association for 2012. See this insert in the 2012 "America's Best Hospitals" edition of US News and World Report for more information.
