We're one of 11 regional stroke centres across the province and one of three within Toronto. We provide rapid assessment, diagnostics and treatment for patients experiencing an acute stroke to maximize the potential for life- and function-saving advanced stroke care.

The Stroke Unit located on General Internal Medicine Unit is supported by the Stroke Assessment and Treatment Team, which is comprised of a stroke neurologist, case manager, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, speech language pathologist, dietitian and clinical nurse specialist all of whom have expertise in the care and management of stroke patients.

As part of a South East Toronto Regional Stroke Network of the Ontario Stroke System, we provide leadership to the region in the development, implementation and coordination of Best Practice Stroke Care across the continuum including stroke prevention, acute care, rehabilitation, and community re-engagement.

Education and research are important components and we are involved in both professional and patient/family education and research initiatives.
