The Neuroscience Institute at Mercy Health - St. Vincent Medical Center has earned The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Heart-Check mark for their achievement in earning the Advanced Certification for Comprehensive Stroke Center accreditation. This is the highest level of accreditation for stroke care with only 110 comprehensive stroke centers in the country.


In addition, Mercy Health – St. Charles Hospital is certified as an “Advanced Primary Stroke Center” by The Joint Commission.   This designation recognizes St. Charles' vision to deliver world class experiences and care as well as improve the community health and wellbeing for patients needing stroke care.

Emergency stroke care is also provided by our Mobile Stroke Unit. First of its kind in Northwest Ohio, this specialized “emergency room on wheels” is staffed 24/7 with a critical care nurse and a paramedic, as well as a CT technologist, to evaluate, diagnose and begin treatment immediately — wherever you are.


In case of stroke, call 911, and ask for the Mobile Stroke Unit from The Mercy Health Neuroscience Institute.
