Experiencing a stroke can be frightening and overwhelming for patients and their family members. They often leave the hospital with many questions about what happened and what to expect going forward.
The Bon Secours Stroke Clinic offers a special program to help patients recover and avoid future strokes. At their follow-up appointment one to two weeks after discharge, patients review their imaging and test results with their doctor, discuss their rehabilitation plan and review their medications. Patients and family members can get answers to questions about their stroke and learn how to avoid future strokes.
The Bon Secours Neuroscience Institute has the largest neurointerventional practice in Virginia. And all of Bon Secours’ hospitals are Joint Commission Certified Primary Stroke Centers, a certification given only to facilities that adhere to strict, evidence-based standards of stroke care.
