Stroke Center

Minutes matter. A stroke can cause much damage, such as long-term disability. But knowing the risks and symptoms, and then acting quickly if they’re present, can go a long way toward increasing chances of survival and recovery.

The New York State Department of Health selected Crouse Hospital as an official state-designated Stroke Center because our dedicated stroke team is organized to respond in the most efficient, patient-supportive manner to provide comprehensive care for stroke patients.


In fact, in 2010, Crouse was the first area hospital to earn "Gold Plus" status for stroke care treatment from the American Stroke Association. Crouse also earned this status in 2012 and again in 2013 and 2014. What does this mean?  Better and faster care for people who suffer a stroke – where fast treatment can make all the difference.

If you suspect someone is having a stroke or other type of acute injury or illness, call 911 immediately.
