Our Physicians and Nurses


We approach stroke care in a holistic manner including care for the physical and emotional well-being of our patients.

At the Mercy Stroke Center we approach stroke care in a holistic manner including care for the physical and emotional well-being of our patients and encouraging families to be part of the treatment and recovery process. The Mercy Stroke Center at Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center is part of a newly-remodeled neuroscience unit, designed to provide patients with a comfortable and specialized environment for treatment and recovery.

Our highly trained and experienced clinical team at the Mercy Stroke Center takes an integrated and coordinated approach to treatment of stroke patients.
