Stroke Services

Anaheim Global Medical Center is proud to be one of only four Comprehensive Stroke Centers in Orange County, and one in less than 200 nationwide.

Anaheim Global Medical Center is a Certified Primary Stroke Center as certified by Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program (HFAP). Our highly trained stroke team includes board-certified emergency physicians, neurologists, interventional radiologists, and other stroke care specialists who are devoted to delivering exceptional patient care. Time is precious when the onset of stroke symptoms first occur. As a stroke receiving center, our team is skilled and experienced in treating stroke symptoms, fast.

A stroke occurs when the brain is deprived of sufficient blood flow, leading to an interruption in the delivery of vital oxygen and nutrients. A delayed disruption of normal blood flow can cause lasting damage to brain tissue. The key to recovery is the administration of treatment within the first couple of hours after having had a stroke. This has been shown to improve long term outcomes.

As a Certified Primary Stroke Center, Anaheim Global Medical Center offers stroke emergency evaluation and intervention, stroke workup, stroke treatment, and post-discharge follow up in accordance with guidelines set forth by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.
