Saint Alphonsus Health System has the region's most advanced Trauma Center (level II), which recognizes our dedication to providing the highest quality, most optimal care for all critically ill and injured patients.

It also creates a foundation of medical excellence, innovation, and collaboration that makes the overall care all our patients receive throughout the region, that much better.


Saint Alphonsus is the leading provider of advanced, innovative and interdisciplinary neurological services, and was the region's first Joint Commission Accredited Advanced Primary Stroke Center.

Our collaborative team approach includes neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, vascular surgeons, neurologists, neuropathologists, physiatrists, oncologists and neuro optometrists focused on delivering the best options and outcomes to patients.

With a stroke, time is of the essence. Our facility is a TSE Level 1 Comprehensive Stroke Center. Our team provides remote care and consults to stroke patients, through telemedicine services, at nearly all emergency departments throughout the region. We also excel in utilizing the latest technology to attack strokes such as biplane angiography, MRI/MRA, CT/CTA, CT perfusion, 4-vessel angiography, and interventional stroke and aneurysm procedures. Learn more about the region's most advanced neuroscience program.
