Providence Stroke Centers of Oregon

Providence Stroke Centers of Oregon

At the Providence Stroke Center, we care for more stroke patients than any other hospital system in Oregon, but it’s the quality of our care that really counts. More than a decade ago, Providence was the first in the state to receive national recognition as a Primary Stroke Center.

Today, Providence has two Primary Stroke Centers and one Primary Plus Stroke Center in Oregon, as well as a Comprehensive Stroke Center at St. Vincent Medical Center, where we deliver the highest level of care for the most complex stroke patients. We also work collaboratively with hospitals throughout Oregon and southern Washington through our Telestroke Network, enabling local providers to connect with our stroke experts and helping more families receive great care in their own communities.
