OUR PRIMARY STROKE CENTER IS THE
ONLY PLACE IN MARIN THAT CAN TREAT
ALL TYPES OF STROKE ON SITE.
If you suspect you or a loved one is suffering a stroke,
every minute counts. And you can count on the expertise
of Marin General Hospital. While all stroke centers can treat
common ischemic strokes (using venous tPA), we go beyond
the basics. We have neurosurgeons and interventional
neuroradiologists available 24/7 to treat hemorrhagic strokes
and other more complex cases. Other hospitals have to
transfer these patients for lifesaving treatment.
What’s more, we have a dedicated stroke team available to
our Emergency Department 24/7, and a neurologist is always
on call. Our comprehensive program includes follow-up care;
physical, speech, and occupational therapy; rehab; and
Our exceptional care has earned us the American Stroke
Association’s Gold Plus Award for 2012.
If you are experiencing stroke symptoms,
call 911 immediately.
