PRHC was designated as a District Stroke Centre in 2004 and was awarded Stroke Distinction by Accreditation Canada in 2018.

The HKPR District Stroke Centre is the tPA delivery site and EVT triage centre for the HKPR District.  PRHC triages approximately 700 Stroke/TIA patients every year in the Emergency Department.  PRHC is supported 100% by Telestroke and is one of the highest users of Telestroke in the province.

Stroke Unit:

PRHC has an Integrated Stroke Unit for patients requiring hospitalization after stroke.  PRHC admits approximately 275 acute stroke patients every year from the Peterborough area.  Approximately 40% of these patients remain at PRHC for further rehabilitation. Patients from other areas within the district may be repatriated back to their community hospitals for care.
