The Stroke Program at Chester County Hospital in West Chester, PA.The Stroke Program at Chester County Hospital is a Joint Commission-Certified Primary Stroke Center and is recognized nationally for its exceptional stroke care. 

The Chester County Hospital stroke program treats all types of stroke and other diseases affecting the blood vessels in the brain. Our physicians evaluate, diagnose, and treat stroke. As part of Penn Medicine, Chester County Hospital is able to facilitate access to expert tertiary stroke care services to our community members. 

A stroke occurs when there is an interruption of blood supply to the brain. As a result, nerve cells in the affected area of the brain are deprived of oxygen and die rapidly. When nerve cells die, the areas of the body controlled by these cells are unable to function.  

A stroke is an emergency and receiving immediate urgent care is critical to minimizing brain damage and preventing disability. 

If you think you or someone you know may be having a stroke, it is critical to receive IMMEDIATE CARE. You should call 911 right away!
