Joint Commission Primary Stroke Certified

The North Suburban Medical Center Primary Stroke Certified Program provides the very best care for the patients with a diagnosis of Stroke. 

What is Stroke?

Stroke is a disease that affects the arteries leading to and within the brain. It is the No. 5 cause of death and a leading cause of disability in the United States. A stroke occurs when a blood vessel that carries oxygen and nutrients to the brain is either blocked by a clot or bursts (or ruptures). When that happens, part of the brain cannot get the blood (and oxygen) it needs, so it and brain cells die.
