Stroke Care Close to Home for Tucson

By Greg Gurule. CREATED May 7, 2014

TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - The Carondelet Neurological Institute has become one-stop-shopping for Tucson residents who need care for strokes and other cerebrovascular diseases.

The center provides a full-range of diagnostic, surgical and recovery facilities, all under one roof.

Stroke patients and others often had to travel to Phoenix and even out of state for care that often went on for months.

Traveling for care is very expensive, time consuming and hard on family members who have to accompany a patient. 

Patients also say staying close to home is less stressful than having to go on the road.
