Muskoka Algonquin Healthcare (MAHC) Huntsville District Memorial Hospital is a tPA delivery site for patients who meet the criteria.
MAHC does not have an Acute Stroke Unit at either site.
Rehabilitation (Inpatient & Outpatient):
MAHC does not have designated inpatient rehabilitation beds. Occupational Therapy (OT) and Physiotherapy (PT) are available to inpatients on a full-time basis. Speech-Language Pathology (SLP) is available on a part-time basis. These rehabilitation services are shared between all inpatients (not limited to those with a stroke diagnosis) at both sites.
The Bracebridge site (South Muskoka Memorial hospital) does have 16 Complex Continuing Care beds that may provide Slow Stream Rehabilitation.
Stroke Prevention Clinic:
Our patients have access to the Stroke Prevention Clinic at the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre in Barrie.
There is a self-referral stroke education clinic available to all patients who come to either of the MAHC sites (HDMH, SMMH) with TIA or stroke. This is not a prevention clinic. Its purpose is to provide general stroke education. This is provided by the MAHC District Stroke Nurse - Donna Crump R.N.
