Comprehensive Stroke Center

A Comprehensive Stroke Center that is well within reach.

Bringing stroke treatment and education to the community is a top priority for us, which is why we are proud to be Ventura County’s first certified Comprehensive Stroke Center. This accreditation reflects the highest level of competence for the treatment of acute stroke events. Los Robles Hospital & Medical Center’s Comprehensive Stroke Center provides advanced, timely treatment for stroke patients. In addition, we are proud that our stroke program has been recognized by the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association for our quality of patient care and outcomes.

What does it mean to be a Comprehensive Stroke Center

Being a Comprehensive Stroke Center is the highest honor that a Stroke Center can receive and means that the program has met the rigorous requirements that sets it apart from other institutions. It means that patients have all of the resources they need to address their condition, from the moment they arrive at the hospital to the moment they transition to acute rehab. Our staff has undergone specialized training to ensure that they are up to date with the latest practices of treating stroke symptoms. 

When treating a stroke, time is of the essence, but you can rest assured that you are in the right hands. As soon as a stroke alert goes out, members of our stroke team are readily available in the Emergency Department or other areas of the hospital to come to the patient’s aid. We work closely with EMS to ensure that we are in constant communication so that our staff is readily available as soon as the patient arrives. By carefully assessing the situation, our staff is able to offer our stroke patients a wide range of treatment options based on their conditions. Our goal is to treat each patient so that they can have a smooth recovery and better quality of life post-stroke.

Whether you or a loved one is experiencing stroke symptoms, we want you to feel assured that Los Robles Hospital’s multidisciplinary stroke team is available at all times. We can’t control when a stroke will happen, but we can certainly be prepared after it does. At Los Robles Hospital we know that every second counts and we want to ensure that you receive the most advanced stroke treatment quickly.

Our highly specialized team of neurologists, neurosurgeons, neurointerventionalists, neurointensivists, technologists and nurses are here to care for you 24/7. The team is trained to respond immediately with treatments that range from stroke medications, intravenous tPA, and interventional techniques. Advanced imaging systems in our Neurointerventional Radiology Suite help us save valuable time while preserving valuable brain tissue in order to help identify the exact nature of the stroke.

Los Robles Hospital’s advanced care and treatment techniques have the ability to extend the treatment window significantly by dissolving and extracting brain blood clots deep in the brain. We are proud to be the only hospital in Ventura County that offers a neuroendovascular program, which provides the latest evidence based treatment for acute stroke. Should you need it, our Neuro ICU is staffed at all hours by neuro intensivists, physicians with neuro critical care privileges, and an additional level of training and certification in critical care medicine. The unit is dedicated to treating stroke patients and patients with other neurological injuries or diseases.

If you think you or a loved one are having a stroke call 9-1-1 immediately.
