 Stroke Treatment / Prevention

​​

Trillium Health Partners’ Mississauga Hospital is a regional stroke centre and one of the top hospitals in Canada for caring for acute stroke patients.

Stroke is a medical emergency. Chances of surviving a stroke and recovering fully are much higher if you get medical help right away. Mississauga Hospital's Emergency Centre has staff skilled in identifying and treating stroke patients. If a patient arrives at the Urgent Care Centre in our Queensway Health Centre location showing signs of a stroke or stroke-like symptoms, they will be transferred immediately to Mississauga Hospital's Emergency Centre.

Stroke patients needing admission to hospital are cared for in our Comprehensive Stroke Unit.

We have four brain doctors (neurologists) who specialize in stroke care as well as an experienced inter-professional stroke team that delivers best practice care. Patients receive acute and rehabilitation care all in one unit eliminating the need to change beds or health care teams.
