If you or a loved one has had a stroke, we want you to know that — with appropriate care and hard work — many people are able to dramatically improve the quality of their lives in the months of recovery after a stroke.

At Virginia Mason, appropriate care starts the moment the stroke team is alerted that a patient is on the way to the Emergency Department. Every second counts, and outcomes from our stroke emergency care are among the best in the country. In fact, we are one of the few hospitals in the Northwest to be certified as a comprehensive stroke center.

Stroke Certification
Our stroke center does not have the highest volume of stroke patients in Washington state, and we don’t take an assembly-line approach to care. Instead, we are a certified Comprehensive Stroke Center that focuses on each individual’s medical care, personal goals, rehabilitation and family situation.

That’s why many people who had initial stroke care at another facility come to Virginia Mason for their follow-up care.
