As the designated District Stroke Centre for this region, WRH's District Stroke Centre (DSC) team and its partners work collaboratively with many local organizations and disciplines to plan and implement strategies for improving stroke care in response to local, regional and provincial identified needs and priorities.
Stroke is a devastating disease, a leading cause of morbidity and mortality, and one of the most expensive diseases to treat. Because of the vital services offered at the Ouellette Campus, services for stroke and TIA patients are coordinated through the hospital, improving cost efficiencies and delivering better care to patients in Windsor-Essex, Chatham-Kent, and Sarnia-Lambton.
The DSC Team supports health service providers and patients across the continuum of care with the best practice and a patient-centred lens.
Research clearly indicates that prevention measures, stroke treatments, and good health practices help prevent death, reduce disability, and save billions of dollars in healthcare costs. WRH, in conjunction with Erie Shores Healthcare, Hotel-Dieu Grace Healthcare, and other community agencies, is committed to providing a comprehensive best practice program to help improve stroke outcomes, while providing a continuum of care, support and critical therapies for stroke survivors and their families.
