Henry Mayo's Award-Winning Stroke Center
Henry Mayo has been nationally recognized for its excellence in stroke care by both American Heart Association and The Joint Commission, earning the Gold Seal of Approval™ as an Advanced Primary Stroke Center, a designation that puts your community hospital in the forefront of excellence in medicine.
Each year about 700,000 people experience a new or recurrent stroke, which is the nation's third leading cause of death and a leading cause of serious, long-term disability.
In response to local need, Henry Mayo has developed a comprehensive system for rapid diagnosis and treatment of stroke patients, which includes state-of-the-art equipment to provide brain imaging scans, and highly experienced neurologists who provide patient evaluations for diagnoses and critical, immediate treatment.
"Stroke is a serious condition, but it can be treatable if caught in time," explained Mark Schultz, MD, board-certified neurologist and medical director for Henry Mayo's Advanced Primary Stroke Center. "Our ability to provide fast, brain-saving care matters to every patient who walks out of our hospital who would have otherwise been paralyzed or disabled for life as a result of a stroke. We do this for our patients and for those who love them."
Choosing where to receive your health care is an important decision. Patients who come to Henry Mayo benefit from state-of-the-art medical care close to home and the peace of mind that comes from being cared for by compassionate, knowledgeable staff at one of the leading health care facilities in Los Angeles County.
