Stroke

Stroke

We know that having a stroke is a scary and possibly life-altering experience for both the stroke survivor and his or her loved ones.

At Sentara, our doctors work closely with each patient to create an individualized treatment plan. Also, utilizing Sentara TeleStroke capabilities, Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital’s team is able to assess a possible stroke patient at arrival and provide a specialized stroke evaluation within five minutes, ensuring that treatment can begin as quickly as possible.

Our neurologists take a unique team approach to care, working side-by-side with other specialists to help throughout your recovery journey.

To expand the reach of our stroke care services in our region, we recently opened a helipad, allowing faster transport service to Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital for critically ill patients, including patients experiencing stroke. Highly trained personnel using advanced medical equipment can now bring patients via hospital directly to our emergency department from outlying counties for services not available in those areas.
