Stroke is a serious, life threatening condition that requires immediate medical care. The appropriateness and speed of medical care patients receive from a neurologist can mean the difference between recovery and severe neurological damage. From early intervention treatments in the Emergency Room to the 24-bed Rehabilitation Unit located on 2 North, SGMC’s neurological program provides comprehensive care to help patients that have suffered from a stroke.

Additionally, SGMC Neurology and Neurosciences, is home to three expert neurologists. Learn more about outpatient neurological services.


A stroke, also called a “brain attack,” can happen to anyone at any time. It occurs when blood flow to an area of the brain is cut off. This interruption causes brain cells to be deprived of oxygen and begin to die. Abilities controlled by that area of the brain, such as speech, movement and memory, can be affected. A neurologist can determine the severity of the stroke by where the stroke occurs in the brain and how much the brain is damaged.
