At Barrow Stroke Program, we are committed to providing excellent care, informing the community about prevention through control of risk factors, and finding new ways of treating and preventing stroke through research.
Barrow Neurological Institute at Dignity Health St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center has one of the most experienced and expert stroke programs in the country, caring for more stroke victims than any other center in the southwestern United States.
The Barrow Stroke Program has also treated more patients with tPA (tissue plasminogen activator), the only FDA-approved “clot-busting” drug, than any hospital in the United states. Barrow is the major stroke research center in the Southwest. Our team conducts more clinical stroke treatment and prevention research trials than any other institution in the region.
