As a District Stroke Centre, Cornwall Community Hospital (CCH) is responsible for the leadership, development, implementation and coordination of local stroke care in the East Champlain Region.
CCH works to improve care and support for local stroke patients throughout their health care journey—from the first symptoms of stroke through the transition from Emergency Medical Services to hospital care and from rehabilitation to follow up with primary care physicians to prevent complications and second strokes.
The Stroke Program at CCH provides a continuum of
