Stroke Care Units

The St. John Heyman Stroke Center provides specialized care in our neurotrauma ICU and telemetry stroke unit.

The St. John Heyman Stroke Center provides specialized care to stroke patients in our 22-bed neurotrauma surgical intensive care unit (NTSICU) and our 25-bed stroke telemetry unit, which will expand by July 2016. Both units are located in the J.A. Chapman Tower at St. John Medical Center.

Through their National Institute of Health Stroke Scale (NIHSS) certification, Heyman Stroke Center nurses are trained and receive ongoing training to accurately evaluate a stroke patient’s condition and provide the best possible care. As the only Magnet-designated facility in eastern Oklahoma, St. John provides proven excellence in nursing care.
