Al Khalidi Hospital & Medical Center inaugurated the Intensive Stroke Unit in 2010. It is the first and the only one of its kind in Jordan dedicated to providing round-the-clock assessment, diagnosis and definitive treatment for brain stroke patients (Cerebrovascular Attacks “CVA”).
The goal and challenge of this Intensive Stroke Unit is to improve the stroke treatment standards in Jordan and the region and to be the leader in stroke therapy.
Al Khalidi Hospital & Medical Center’s Intensive Stroke Unit comprises specialized physicians and nurses, advanced imaging modalities, up-to-date medical treatment including thrombolysis (Clot Dissolving Agents), and post-stroke rehabilitation services. Our success rates are comparable to similar units in USA and Europe.
