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. More than two decades ago, Providence received national recognition as a Primary Stroke Center through a rigorous certification process.

Today, Providence Oregon Region has two Primary Stroke Centers – a Primary Plus Stroke Center at Providence Portland Medical Center and a Comprehensive Stroke Center at St. Vincent Medical Center – where we deliver the highest level of care for the most complex stroke patients. We 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 patients receive great care in their own communities.
