One of Florida’s Top Stroke Hospitals – Tampa General Hospital
Tampa General Hospital is one of Florida’s top stroke hospitals. As a state-designated comprehensive stroke center, we have the resources to treat even the most complex stroke conditions 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. At TGH, we exceed the rigorous standards required for this type of certification by providing advanced care from a multidisciplinary team for patients suffering from hemorrhagic or ischemic strokes.
By consistently demonstrating proficiency in the fields of neurology, neurosurgery, and neuroradiology, TGH became the first hospital on the west coast of Florida to earn national certification as a comprehensive stroke center by the Healthcare Facilities Accreditation Program. Additionally, we have been named a High Performing Hospital for Neurology & Neurosurgery by U.S. News & World Report. Our status as one of the top stroke hospitals is due to our:
- Use of leading-edge technologies, including magnetic resonance imaging/angiograms and transcranial Doppler equipment.
- Always-on-call team of specialists in vascular neurology, neurosurgery, and endovascular procedures.
- Commitment to advancing stroke prevention, diagnosis, and treatment through our engagement in national and international clinic trials.
- Ability to provide emergency stroke interventions.
Most important is TGH’s comprehensive approach to stroke care. Our multidisciplinary team provides much more than life-saving diagnostic and interventional care. As one of the top stroke hospitals, we also provide a full suite of preventive and rehabilitative services designed to protect and enhance the long-term health and quality of life of our patients.
