Huron Perth District Stroke Centre

The Huron Perth Healthcare Alliance – Stratford General Hospital site is home to the Huron Perth District Stroke Centre.  We care for those who are either at risk of having a stroke or who have just experienced a stroke or Transient Ischemic Attack (TIA).

Patients who are having signs of a stroke are brought to Stratford General Hospital by Emergency Medical Services (EMS).  As a District Stroke Centre we offer patients an emergency stroke assessment, which includes a brain scan and if appropriate we can provide the clot busting drug called tissue plasminogen activator (tPA). We can also assess for eligibility to have a clot removal surgery called Endovascular Thrombectomy (EVT).  Those who are eligible for EVT are transferred to London for this procedure.

Once emergency treatments are complete you may be referred to one or more of the following services:

  • Stroke Prevention Clinic
  • Integrated Stroke Unit
  • Community Stroke Rehabilitation Team

Did you know?

Stroke is a medical emergency. If you notice any of these signs:

Face is it drooping?

Arms can you raise both?

Speech is it slurred or jumbled?

Time to call 9-1-1 right away.

Do not drive to the hospital. Call 9-1-1. Treatment will begin in an ambulance while traveling to a designated stroke hospital.

More information can be found at the Heart & Stroke Foundation.
