Primary and Comprehensive Stroke Centers

When it comes to stroke care, timing is everything. Assessment and treatment of stroke begins in our Emergency Department. The Brain Attack Team (BAT) is available 24/7 and is comprised of emergency medicine physicians, neurologists, neurointerventionalists, neurosurgeons, interventional radiologists, and stroke certified nursing staff. Our designated stroke units, inclusive of a Comprehensive Stroke Center, are equipped with state-of-the-art technology to help ensure your loved one receives a higher level of care. Our hospitals are also designated Primary Stroke Centers, recognized by the Joint Commission.

If you require rehabilitation after a stroke, our Inpatient and Outpatient Rehabilitation Units can get you on a path to recovery and is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).

Sleep Disorders

Broward Health’s Sleep Disorders Center offers diagnosis and treatment for more than 80 different sleep disorders. The Center is comprised of physicians who are board certified in sleep medicine and pulmonary medicine, as well as staff who are specially trained in sleep disorders.

Breathing problems, neurological problems and insomnia are among the many different causes of sleep disorders. The Center provides comprehensive treatment, including evaluation, diagnostic testing and treatment. Once the diagnosis is made, our team provides a full range of treatment options. If a patient is diagnosed with sleep apnea and requires continuous positive airway pressure or bi-level airway pressure, free training and support is available through the Center.

Memory Disorder Center

Our Memory Disorder Center offers a multidisciplinary approach to determine the cause of memory impairment. Our team of specialists, including neurologists, neuropsychologists, geriatric psychiatrists, social workers and nurses, provide a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation. Upon the completion of the diagnostic process, patients and their caregivers meet with the neurologist and members of the multidisciplinary team to discuss diagnosis, planning for the future and available resources.

Memory loss can have many causes including thyroid imbalance, Alzheimer's disease, nutritional or metabolic disorders, stroke, or other neurological conditions.

When a patient is diagnosed with a memory disorder, such as Alzheimer's disease, every family member is affected, especially the caregiver. Through our unique programs, the Center offers a complete network of assistance for patients and caregivers. The center is one of fifteen in the state designated and funded by the State of Florida Department of Elder Affairs as a part of the Alzheimer’s Disease Initiative.

The Latest Technology

Broward Health Weston is home to the first Siemens Definition AS+ 128 Multi-Slice CT Scanner in Broward County. It's the world's first CT Scanner to adapt to virtually every patient and provides imaging for most types of diagnostic exams, including vessel imaging, cardiac tests and cancer staging. It's exceptionally fast – even faster than the human heart – and produces spectacular images, plus in many cases it eliminates the need for follow-up tests.
