A special place for stroke survivors
UVa's Stroke Unit is the place where our patients recovering from stroke receive care from specially trained staff. It provides a high standard of care for stroke patients through an intensive program of clinical research and specialized treatment protocols. The nurses here understand the unique medical requirements of patients recovering from various types of stroke. Our physical, occupational and speech therapists work solely with patients who are overcoming strokes and other neurological problems. Our social workers are uniquely qualified to assist patients with a range of needs; from returning to work after a stroke to dealing with the potential maze of social and medical issues following a major cerebral injury.
The Stroke Unit is located on the 6th floor (Central) of the University of Virginia Health Systems in Charlottesville, Virginia.
