About

During a stroke, every minute counts.

That’s why we’re working 24 hours a day, seven days a week to care for acute stroke patients. The St. John Heyman Stroke Center is the first Joint Commission-certified comprehensive stroke center in eastern Oklahoma, offering the latest imaging technologies and specialties. Our multidisciplinary team includes neurological, emergency, surgical, radiologic and rehabilitation services.
