Comprehensive Stroke Center at
PIH Health Whittier Hospital

At PIH Health, bringing stroke treatment and education to the community is a top priority. We are proud to be one of the first hospitals in Los Angeles County to receive The Joint Commission’s Gold Seal of Approval® and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Heart-Check mark for Advanced Certification for Comprehensive Stroke Centers which recognizes our quality stroke programs with the highest level of competence for the treatment of acute stroke events.

Whether you or a loved one is experiencing stroke symptoms, you can be confident that PIH Health’s multidisciplinary stroke team of neurologists, neurosurgeons, interventional radiologists, critical care intensivists, nurses, and ancillary staff are here to care for you 24/7. We can’t control when a stroke will happen, but we are prepared when it does. Time is brain, every second counts and we want to ensure that our patients receive the most advanced stroke treatments in a timely manner to minimize or eliminate any residual impact, leading to a smooth recovery and better quality of life for each patient after a stroke.

Our team of experts work together to provide you with the best possible outcome—from the time you arrive through follow-up care, including rehabilitation to regain skills and abilities.

Know the signs of stroke and get care immediately. Call your doctor even if the symptoms go away quickly because this may be a warning that a stroke could happen soon.
