St. Luke’s expands stroke care team and capabilities

St. Luke’s is enhancing its DNV Certified Stroke Center by adding six stroke and interventional neurologists to provide emergent, hospital and clinical care for stroke patients.

The stroke and interventional neurologists will follow patients throughout their inpatient and outpatient recoveries, adding to the continuum of care. The team will also provide outpatient care in St. Luke’s new interventional stroke clinic.


St. Luke’s DNV-Certified Stroke Center is also adding a program coordinator. The Center will be run by St. Luke’s new Stroke Coordinator Diane Roach, APRN, ACNS-BC. She earned her Master of Nursing degree from The College of St. Scholastica, and has nearly 30 years of experience and expertise in stroke care and other fields such as neuroscience, trauma and palliative care.

“I’m excited to work with this experienced team and deliver such comprehensive care to our patients,” said Roach. “Having the expertise of the new stroke and interventional neurologists gives us more ways to help our patients. It allows us to provide a higher level of care than ever before, including performing additional emergent procedures and more immediate stroke care when moments count.”
