STAT TIA and Stroke Clinic
Rapid diagnosis and treatment of TIA and stroke has been shown to decrease the rate of recurrent stroke by 80 percent compared with usual care. Our specialists will see your patients in clinic within three days to achieve that level of risk reduction.

Regional Stroke Alert Program
This program partners Gundersen Lutheran and referral healthcare sites to streamline and accelerate the diagnosis, treatment and transport of acute stroke patients. The goals are to improve stroke outcomes with use of research-based treatment protocols, reduce time to treatment and decrease complications from treatment.

For questions about patients or for more information, please call via MedLink. To arrange a consultation or schedule an appointment, call our Vascular coordinator at (608) 775-GLVI or (800) 362-9567 ext. 5-GLVI (ext. 54584).
