  • Dedicated stroke certified staff and high-acuity clinical and technical monitoring of the stroke patient.
  • Teleneurology available to bring neurology expertise directly into the CHRISTUS St. Michael emergency room.
  • Rehabilitation services providing quality, compassionate care designed to help patients quickly recover.
