Sarnia-Lambton District Stroke Centre & Stroke Prevention Clinic

Bluewater Health was designated as the District Stroke Centre for Sarnia-Lambton in 2003, as part of the Southwestern Ontario Stroke Network which is 1 of 11 Stroke Networks in Ontario.

As a District Stroke Centre, we provide services based on best practice across the continuum of stroke prevention, care, recovery, and reintegration. We are committed to ongoing education, training, and support programs and services, both in the hospital and in the community as they relate to stroke.

The Secondary Stroke Prevention Clinic is an "urgent TIA clinic" providing timely access to assessment of referred patients. The clinic strives to provide physician access fives days per week. The clinic is an outpatient clinic for people who have signs and symptoms of a recent stroke or TIA (mini stroke). The goal of the clinic is to prevent a future stroke by:

  • Providing early assessments and appropriate interventions.
  • Providing rapid access to diagnostic tests.
  • Providing education to patients and family members on stroke prevention and managing risks.
