Stroke Care

A stroke, sometimes called a brain attack, occurs when a clot blocks the blood supply to the brain or when a blood vessel in the brain bursts. It is a serious medical emergency and time is of the essence.

Mercyhealth has five certified stroke centers throughout Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin. Our Comprehensive Stroke Center at Javon Bea Hospital–Riverside provides the highest level of care possible to the most critical stroke patients. We also have two Primary Stroke Centers and two Acute Stroke Ready Centers which means we are prepared to treat strokes 24/7.

From diagnosis and treatment, to rehabilitation and continued care, the highly trained stroke teams at Mercyhealth provide advanced stroke treatments and therapies that can help to save lives and reduce the long-term effects of stroke.
