The Regional Secondary Stroke Prevention Clinic at Mississauga Hospital provides quick assessment and access to diagnostic services and treatment for patients at high risk of suffering a stroke. The clinic was developed in conjunction with Mississauga Hospital's role as the Regional Stroke Centre for the West GTA Stroke Network. The clinic aims to reduce the incidence of stroke through:

  • Early assessment and treatment,
  • Patient and health care provider education on stroke prevention
  • Support and risk factor screening for spouses and family members of stroke patients
  • Medical care and lifestyle changes.

Clinic Hours: Monday to Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
