At UConn Health, a team of experts provides fast, efficient care for patients experiencing symptoms of stroke and personalized, ongoing care for patients who have already experienced a stroke or have other risk factors.
A 24/7 Resource in the Farmington Valley
As is the case for patients experiencing a heart attack, there are two critical times to remember if you think you are having a stroke:
- How soon can I get to the hospital?
- How soon will I receive the care I need?
At UConn Health, men and women in the Farmington Valley or nearby towns have access to comprehensive, world class care to treat strokes 24/7. Our highly trained Emergency Department physicians are part of our stroke team and stand ready to help you or a loved one at any time of the day or night.
Your Hospital Stay
During your hospitalization at UConn Health, you will receive care from nurses and medical and surgical specialists who are on the leading edge of today's best practices in stroke care. They will be a resource to you and your family, every step of the way and will help you plan for a smooth transition to home or the next level of care.
Personalized, Attentive Follow-up Care
At UConn Health, we recognize that every patient is unique and work closely to help patients who experience a stroke recover at their pace and achieve their goals.
