Campaign for Stroke Care

Funding Priorities

The Campaign for Stroke Care

During the second half of 2018 ValleyCare Charitable Foundation’s priority was to raise funds to become a leading provider of cutting-edge stroke care by launching a Primary Stroke Center at Stanford Health Care – ValleyCare, improving outcomes for stroke patients in our community.

The campaign has ended, but you can still give to provide long-term rehabilitation care to stroke patients. Any amount will help.

Thanks to generous donations, the Campaign funded:                                                                                                                 

  • State-of-the-art Telestroke Robot to communicate with Stanford neurologists for rapid diagnosis
  • Ceribell Rapid Response EEG Headband to detect non-convulsive seizures that lead to brain damage
  • RAPID CT Perfusion software to provide an intuitive real-time view of blood flow in the brain and image maps
  • Hiring and training frontline staff
  • And more!
