The Stroke Center

Patients with suspected stroke symptoms need to be evaluated immediately. The signs of stroke can be sudden and the effects can be lasting. Nebraska Medicine Stroke Center is accredited and recognized in the state for quality stroke care and continuing education. At the medical center doctors, nurses and medical technicians are dedicated to continuing stroke education in their specialties.
