Stroke Unit

Our specialized stroke unit offers eight dedicated acute-care beds, potentially life-saving clot-busting medications and a “tele-stroke” link to provincial electronic health services when added expertise is needed.

Local residents are receiving exceptional stroke care and rehabilitation according to provincial annual report cards released by the Ontario Stroke Network and the Institute for Clinical Evaluation Services.

Waterloo Wellington was highlighted as the top provincial performer in seven areas, helping more residents return home sooner and healthier after a stroke while reducing transfers to long-term care.
