Expert care and support for stroke patients and families.

Our stroke care team is second-to-none and receives the highest marks from the Arizona Heart and Stroke Association. Our post-stroke team is here to support you with rehabilitation, referrals and stroke support groups. All of this support is made possible by donors like you.

Larry Bobko’s Story

Teri and Larry Bobko had just found a home in Arizona to retire to from the Midwest when Larry experienced a stroke, triggered by a blood clot in the left side of his brain. The Mercy Medical Center emergency department team offered Larry a clot-busting shot known as TpA, which has proven extremely effective in such emergency scenarios. Larry had a long road to recovery from there, but has found a “new normal” thanks to exceptional care made possible in part by our generous donors. Read Larry’s story here.


Jimmie Daniels’ Story

When Jimmie Daniels experienced a stroke, emergency treatment was just the beginning of his road to recovery. Daniels says he is grateful that Dignity Health offered a variety of post-stroke programs such as a support group, the “Ringers of Hope” chimes choir, and a summer camp experience - all made possible thanks to the generosity of donors - that helped him along the way.
