Eisenhower Stroke Center
Eisenhower's Stroke Center offers comprehensive care to all stroke patients. A multidisciplinary team approach ensures the best possible care of patients throughout the process.
Patients receive their initial treatment in the Tennity Emergency Department, where the Stroke Activation Process begins. Testing and diagnosis are followed up with the highest quality of inpatient treatment. Eisenhower has stroke neurologists, interventional radiologists, and neurosurgeons on call, which means we can provide comprehensive, specialized care for stroke patients 24/7. The result is immediate diagnosis and treatment during a critical window of time.
Certified Primary Stroke Center
Eisenhower Health was the first hospital in Riverside and San Bernardino counties to be designated a Certified Primary Stroke Center by The Joint Commission. To receive designation as a Primary Stroke Center, Eisenhower participated in a rigorous application process and submitted data on stroke admissions, treatment plans and outcomes.
Eisenhower Medical Center's Stroke Program has earned advanced recertification of its primary stroke center by The Joint Commission, earning the distinction after The Joint Commission's recent on-site review. Additionally, the Riverside County EMS Agency (REMSA) designated Eisenhower Health as an "Interventional Stroke Receiving Center" - the highest status possible.
"The Joint Commission's recertification and the REMSA designation underscore the incredible teamwork and clinical excellence of physicians, nurses, staff and administration,"
The combined efforts of a multidisciplinary team of neurologists, interventional neuroradiologists, hospitalists, nurse practitioners, emergency physicians and specialty-trained nurses - all trained to assess acute ischemic stroke, helped meet the strict national standards for providing safe, high quality care to stroke patients.
