Stroke Center Certification

McLaren Oakland physicians and nurses who care for stroke patients have gone through a rigorous education process to better serve patients who come to our hospital with stroke signs and symptoms. To become a certified primary stroke center, the team at McLaren Oakland had to meet strict national standards. We are proud to say we have met or exceeded those expectations and we continually monitor our processes and outcomes to ensure that each patient receives the best care for maximal recovery.

Members of our stroke center include the ER physicians and nurses, stroke unit nurses, physical/occupational and speech therapists and the neurologist, in addition other health care professionals at McLaren Oakland. In addition to providing the highest level of care for stroke patients, we provide support and education for family members.
