Rush Stroke Program

The Rush Stroke Program provides comprehensive acute care for emergency stroke and related conditions, such as transient ischemic attacks (TIA) and brain aneurysms. The program also provides follow-up care for patients coping with the aftermath of a stroke.

The program’s goal is to prevent occurrence of a future stroke by providing you with the following:

  • Medical management
  • Neurosurgical options
  • Tools to modify your lifestyle

The stroke program welcomes individuals seeking a second opinion. 

The program has been certified by the Joint Commission as a comprehensive stroke center. This certification recognizes hospitals that have the most advanced level of stroke care for patients. Rush is one of only two hospitals in Chicago with this designation.
