Banner Estrella Medical Center offers patients:

Even before a patient with stroke symptoms arrives at Banner Estrella, a “Stroke Alert” response code is called throughout the hospital to assemble the patient care team and expedite care for the potential patient.
In 2014, Banner Estrella Medical Center was awarded the Get with The Guidelines®-Stroke Silver-Plus Quality Achievement Award for implementing specific quality improvement measures outline by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association for the treatment of stroke patients.
For some patients, our extensive rehabilitation programs play a pivotal role in recovery. We offer physical, speech, occupational and recreation therapies under the direction of rehabilitation therapists.
