Primary Stroke Center
For some patients suffering from an ischemic stroke (caused by a blood clot), tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) can be used to dissolve the blood clot and treat and stroke. You can trust our experienced team to administer this breakthrough treatment quickly and efficiently during such a critical time.
The Villages® Regional Hospital, part of Central Florida Health, partners with UF Health to provide comprehensive stroke care to our patients when needed, offering timely access to the latest technology and the most advanced treatments available. UF Health physicians accept transfer patients from Central Florida Health facilities 24/7 and provide around-the-clock access to consults with a vascular neurologist regarding treatment plans and decisions related to administration of the clot-busting drug tPA for patients who remain in the local area. UF Health also provides educational opportunities, including continuing medical education about the latest in stroke care.
