The stroke program at Memorial Hermann Greater Heights also benefits from close affiliation with Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center and the Mischer Neuroscience Institute at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center. Both locations are certified Comprehensive Stroke Centers, and patients can be easily transferred to either hospital if a higher level of care is required.

Patients gain real-time access to unparalleled stroke care and leading neurological treatment around the clock, all from the familiar comfort and life-saving accessibility of their own community hospital.
