A stroke is an attack on your brain. Here at Columbus Regional Health we know that every minute matters. Knowing the warning signs could save your life or the life of someone you love. If you experience one or more of the following warning stroke symptoms, every minute counts. Don't wait, call 911 immediately.

Better outcomes for stroke care

We are accredited through the ACHS (Accreditation Commission for Health Care) for Primary Stroke Certification. CRH stroke services feature a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals led by board-certified neurologists and clinical nurse specialists supported by a team of emergency physicians, radiologists, therapists and other professionals.

A stroke is an emergency - an attack on the brain

Which is why it is important to recognize stroke symptoms and call 911 immediately. Our program starts by educating the community about strokes: how to recognize a stroke, what to do in case someone has a stroke, types of stroke treatment available, therapy and stroke rehabilitation.

From community outreach, to stroke treatment and therapy, our self-management model combined with the national standards and guidelines that we follow, we deliver more successful patient outcomes.

After a Stroke

After a stroke, the caregivers on our team start therapy on day one. Although many hospitals start in the first 48 hours, we believe, and it is supported by medical literature, that your best chance for a successful stroke recovery is when therapy begins in the first 24 hours.

One way we can do this is with our state-of-the-art body support unit, an apparatus that un-weights a patient and allows them to start movement regardless of strength or muscular control.

From community education, to stroke treatment and therapy, stroke rehabilitation and our self-management recovery model combined with the national standards and guidelines that we follow, our team delivers more successful patient outcomes.
