Our Approach

In the minutes following a stroke, brain cells begin to die. The multidisciplinary team of specialists at CHRISTUS Health provides stroke care from the emergency department through treatment and rehabilitation. Emergency Medical Services (EMS) calls ahead to the CHRISTUS Emergency Department to activate our stroke alert team, which is on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The stroke team immediately initiates comprehensive evaluation and treatment, quickly determining whether a stroke is ischemic (blocked blood vessel) or hemorrhagic (caused by a bleeding blood vessel).

In addition, we help with behavior health, long term treatment and stabilization for stroke and chronic conditions.
