Stroke is the sixth leading cause of death and one of the leading causes of disability in Minnesota. The Minnesota Stroke Program is committed to reducing the burden of stroke in the state through raising stroke awareness in the community, providing continuing education to health care providers, and working to improve the entire system of care for stroke patients.
- Stroke Hospital Designation. We designate hospitals as acute stroke ready hospitals, primary stroke centers, and comprehensive stroke centers in our statewide system of stroke. Get in touch with Stroke Team staff.
- Our statewide registry of stroke patient quality of care data captures over 90% of all stroke patient visits in the state.
- We work with EMS agencies to improve statewide stroke care in the pre-hospital setting.
- We work with hospitals to put systems into place to improve care to stroke patients after they leave the hospital.
- We teach the public the signs and symptoms of heart attack and stroke and the importance of calling 9-1-1 through advertising and community education efforts.
