Nationally recognized stroke care at University of Colorado Hospital

UCHealth University of Colorado Hospital (UCH) in metro Denver is a Joint Commission-certified Comprehensive Stroke Center. This means that we provide stroke patients the highest level of care possible. UCH recently earned its 3rd recertification for Comprehensive Stroke.

Superior expertise

University of Colorado Hospital has the largest neurovascular service in the state. Our nationally renowned doctors offer highly specialized surgical techniques and interventional neuroradiology procedures not available elsewhere in Colorado. This means better results for patients who may otherwise suffer from irreversible brain damage or death.

Our quick response was recognized by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association (AHA/ASA) with their 2020 Get With the Guidelines® Stroke Gold Plus award for outstanding care.

Our stroke outcomes

Many of the patients who come to us for neurological treatment were referred here by physicians who recognize our expertise in proven therapies and our high quality of care.
