WHO WE ARE
University Hospital is licensed by the New Jersey Department of Health and certified by the Joint Commission as a Comprehensive Stroke Center. Our stroke center provides both in-hospital and outpatient care to patients with ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke. We serve the community from the city of Newark and outlying communities.
Our Center has doctors with advanced training in all types of stroke and in diseases that put patients at risk for stroke, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease.
We deliver advanced, state of the art emergency stroke care, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our doctors are experts in removing clots from the blood vessels in the brain, which in certain cases can save brain cells from dying. Patients who are treated early enough once the symptoms of stroke start may recover with little or no disability.
As a Comprehensive Stroke Center, UH strives to erase barriers to stroke care. Stroke policies and processes and multilingual services ensure that all patients have equal access to our services, and practitioners from medicine, cardiology, endocrinology, assist in the evaluation and treatment of the risk factors so prevalent in our patient population.
