Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital: The Stroke Center

Stroke is the nation's third leading killer and the leading cause of disability. There are two types of stroke:

  • Ischemic: interruption of blood flow caused by a clot
  • Hemorrhagic: blood vessel ruptures, causing blood to leak into the brain

The designated Stroke Center at RWJUH provides patients with rapid diagnosis and treatment, specialized inpatient care, access to clinical research through our relationship with Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, discharge planning and post-hospitalization follow-up care.
