The Central South Regional Stroke Network

The Regional Stroke Centre for the Central South Ontario Region is located at Hamilton Health Sciences, Hamilton General Hospital with the mandate to provide tertiary level stroke care within the Central South Ontario Region. It is one of 11 regional centres established across the province to implement the Ontario Stroke System. The District Stroke Centres for the Central South Region include: The Greater Niagara General Hospital, Grand River Hospital and the Brant Community Healthcare System.

The goal of the Ontario Stroke System is to improve access to evidence-based prevention and care in order to reduce stroke incidence, mortality and residual disability. The system seeks to re-organize stroke-care delivery across the continuum of care, promoting system-change, professional education and public awareness.

If you have any questions about stroke prevention in your area, please contact a member of our team.
