Ayer Neuroscience Institute Stroke Center

The two most important elements in successfully treating stroke are time and
expertise – the faster you are treated and the more skilled your providers, the better
your long-term results.

The Ayer Neuroscience Institute operates Stroke Centers at each Hartford HealthCare hospital, meaning you’re never too far from advanced care. In addition, our specialists are the area’s leading stroke providers, caring for one in three patients with stroke in the state.

At our centers, teams of specialists collaborate on your care from the moment you enter the emergency department through any needed rehabilitation and efforts to prevent future strokes. Being diagnosed and treated quickly means you’ll be left with few, if any, lingering effects from the stroke, which is an interruption in blood supply to the brain.

This is the kind of continuity that is not common or guaranteed in today’s healthcare market, and we are proud to set the standard as we help patients return to their lives.
