Tampa General Hospital is a Leading Stroke Treatment Center
Tampa General Hospital is a stroke treatment center recognized as a leader in preventive, diagnostic, interventional, and rehabilitative care for patients suffering from ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes. Our team consists of board-certified physicians in the fields of neurology, neurosurgery, neuroradiology, and other specialties, giving us the capability to provide comprehensive treatment for patients with complex stroke conditions at any hour, any day of the year.
At TGH, we meet even the strictest criteria for advanced certifications in stroke care. Our ability to provide life-saving interventions is one of the reasons that our stroke treatment center is:
- A state-designated comprehensive stroke center
- The first on Florida’s west coast to earn a national certification as a comprehensive stroke center by the Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program
- Listed in 2015 as a high-performing center for neurology and neurosurgery by S. News & World Report for the third consecutive year
Our status as a comprehensive stroke center means we have the resources necessary to provide our patients with complete diagnostic, interventional, rehabilitative, and preventive stroke care, all in a single location. Our hospital has one of the largest neuroscience ICUs in the country, and we have the ability to transport patients to our center via helicopter from other medical facilities. With advanced diagnostic equipment and the specialized staff needed to provide an exceptionally high level of care that can’t be matched by most other facilities, we are a leading choice for comprehensive stroke treatment.
