Stroke is a medical emergency. Chances of surviving a stroke and achieving full recovery are significantly higher if medical help is sought right away. As a regional stroke centre, Trillium's Emergency Centre has staff skilled in identifying and treating stroke patients. If a patient arrives at Trillium's Urgent Care Centre in its West Toronto facility showing signs of a stroke or stroke-like symptoms, s/he is transferred immediately to Trillium's Emergency Centre.
Stroke patients needing admission to hospital are cared for in the Comprehensive Stroke Unit at Trillium Health Centre - Mississauga.
