Stroke Centers

Leaders in stroke treatment

Five Beaumont hospitals throughout Southeast Michigan have earned the designation of Primary Stroke Center, either by The Joint Commission or the Healthcare Facilities Accreditation program. Beaumont’s Primary Care Stroke Centers are located in Dearborn, Farmington Hills, Grosse Pointe, Royal Oak and Troy.

In 2013, The Joint Commission designated Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak as a Comprehensive Stroke Center, making it the first hospital in Southeast Michigan to achieve this advanced certification, which recognizes hospitals that have state-of-the-art infrastructure, staff and training to receive and treat patients with the most complex strokes.

Additionally, The Joint Commission has designated Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak with advanced certification as a Comprehensive Stroke Center, making Beaumont the second hospital in Michigan and first in Southeast Michigan to achieve this certification, which recognizes hospitals that have state-of-the-art infrastructure, staff and training to receive and treat patients with the most complex strokes.

After passing rigorous on-site reviews and examinations of patient care, Beaumont has been recognized as:

  • providing high-quality medical care that follows national, evidence-based standards
  • meeting the specialized needs of stroke patients
  • making exceptional efforts to foster better outcomes

This designation is considered a "seal of approval" and recognizes the exceptional efforts of the Beaumont stroke care team at providing advanced care according to the latest stroke treatment standards.

Our certification affirms the success of our quality stroke care, which includes:

  • more interventional stroke specialists on staff than any other hospital in Michigan
  • Royal Oak as the only hospital in Oakland and Macomb counties with an emergency treatment team in the hospital 24/7 for complete interventional care for acute stroke and aneurysm patients any time day or night.
  • dedicated intensive care beds for stroke patients
  • a dedicated neuroscience unit with 66 beds and nine monitored critical care beds
  • specially trained and certified nursing staff
  • interventional neurosurgeons and neuroradiologists who can administer intra-arterial t-PA and remove blood clots from the brain

The goal of the Beaumont stroke centers is to provide comprehensive, individualized care that will help our patients recover to achieve the best quality of life possible.
