Excellence in Stroke Care Heading link

In 1997, the newly formed OSF Stroke Network became the largest rural stroke network in the United States.

In 2004, the OSF Stroke Center earned the “Gold Seal of Approval” as a JCAHO certified Primary Stroke Center, the first in Illinois.

Now affiliated with over 25 Illinois hospitals, the Stroke team has developed into one of the most progressive stroke programs in the country, providing excellence in the care of stroke patients, as well as clinical research and education.
