Ask The Doctor: Stroke Care at OSF Healthcare

WMBD This Morning

OSF HealthCare Illinois Neurological Institute Ministry Medical Director of Stroke.
(That means Dr. Arun Talkad oversees stroke care across all of OSF to make sure we are providing the highest level of consistent care no matter where you enter the OSF system.
The OSF HealthCare Illinois Neurological Institute’s (INI) Stroke Center at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center has once again been named a Comprehensive Stroke Center by the Joint Commission and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. It first earned this designation in 2012, and was the second stroke center in the United States to do so.
Dr. Talkad can discuss why this designation is important and what it means for patients. He can also discuss the latest in stroke care – and remind everyone about sign, symptoms… and why you don’t delay seeking treatment (time = brain).
