Inspira Medical Centers in Elmer, Mullica Hill and Vineland are certified as Primary Stroke Centers, allowing the South Jersey community to reach life-saving treatment close to home.

Our Approach to Stroke Care 

Inspira Medical Centers are staffed with physicians and nurses with advanced training in stroke care who are able to provide rapid diagnosis at a moment’s notice, as well as rehabilitation services to ensure the best possible outcomes. The designation as a Primary Stroke Center is based upon the advanced capabilities and protocols for the rapid response, diagnostic evaluation and sophisticated treatment of stroke patients. 

A stroke is an attack on the brain that can happen to anyone, at any time. They happen when blood and oxygen are blocked from traveling to a portion of your brain by a clot (ischemic stroke) or because a weakened vessel ruptures and bleeds into the brain (hemorrhagic stroke).

Strokes are the fifth leading cause of death in the U.S. and the leading cause of disability.  

Symptoms of a Stroke

Know the warning signs of a stroke so you know when help is needed:

  • Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding 
  • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg on one side of the body 
  • Sudden severe headache with no known cause 
  • Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes 
  • Trouble walking, sudden dizziness or loss of coordination 

If you believe you or someone you know is suffering from a stroke, call 9-1-1 immediately.
