Stroke care

Stroke is an emergency that requires rapid assessment and evaluation to maximize the benefits of treatment and reduce brain damage. The emergency department at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – McKinney offers emergent stroke services and is accredited by the Joint Commission as a Primary Stroke Center.

“Brain attack” protocols (treatment plans the medical community has determined to be appropriate treatment) help provide eligible patients with the “clot-busting” therapy called TPA without delay to restore blood flow to the brain. Neurology consultations are conducted via our telemedicine robot, and our laboratory and radiology services all operate 24 hours a day for stroke patients.

The signs or symptoms of a stroke may appear suddenly, without warning. If you or a loved one experiences any of these symptoms, act quickly and call 911.

  • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body
  • Sudden confusion, difficulty speaking or understanding
  • Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
  • Sudden difficulty walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination
