Shasta Regional Medical Center has been certified by The Joint Commission
as an advanced primary stroke center, the first in the North State to
receive this designation. Our dedicated Neurosciences unit is staffed
by nationally certified physicians, registered nurses, and clinical staff
specializing in the stroke, spinal surgery and seizure disorders.
We have a 24-hour stroke team, and we received our Gold Award from the
American Heart Association and American Stroke Association as reported
in the July 2011 issue of U.S. News and World Report.
The Stroke Center offers comprehensive treatment for stroke patients. Services
range from diagnosis to caring for patients affected by stroke. Beginning
with an immediate evaluation and screening by a rapid response stroke
team, specialized nurses, physicians and therapist work together to provide
high-quality care throughout hospitalization to discharge.
In addition, our experts provide preventive care and screening of high-risk patients.
Our commitment to providing comprehensive neurocare services is evident
in our inpatient care unit for neuro patients.
Shasta Regional also is involved in increasing awareness by providing regular
stroke-risk screenings and educational seminars/workshops in the community.
