The team at the UF Health Shands Comprehensive Stroke Center includes not only our physicians but also a team of people who truly care about our patients’ recovery after a stroke.
Our stroke coordinators are passionate about helping their patients get the best treatment possible. They are truly experts on stroke and are instrumental in stroke patient care management, making sure staff is educated about strokes and creating community outreach programs. They are also are crucial in recognizing areas of improvements in our stroke care processes and helping improve our performance.

One of the cornerstones of our stroke center is educating our community about strokes. Understanding the symptoms of a stroke is the first tep in getting the right treatment, FAST. We know time equals brain when it comes to stroke, and we want everyone to know that.
