In a medical crisis, you can count on us. With 26 private rooms and advanced technology, Methodist Hospital’s new Hollfelder Emergency Care Center is equipped to deal with any situation. We can make a difference—especially for life-threatening events like heart attacks and strokes.
You can make a difference, too. When you call 911 right away, paramedics alert us, and we assemble the necessary teams and technology to be ready when the patient arrives. more
When heart attacks happen, every minute matters. Methodist Hospital is more than prepared. As a designated STEMI receiving center, we have the technology and highly trained staff to perform life-saving procedures within a critical 90-minute window. But we can’t do it alone. We need your quick response to make sure a suspected heart attack victim gets the potentially lifesaving treatment. more
When a stroke strikes, there’s no time to lose. Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the US, yet many hospitals aren’t qualified to treat emergency stroke patients. Our new Hollfelder Emergency Care Center is an advanced primary stroke center. Our state-of-the-art equipment and specialized staff can give stroke patients a second chance. But we can’t do it alone. By calling 911, you ensure that paramedics bring the patient to Methodist Hospital for fast treatment. more

Stroke Recovery Program
Methodist Hospital’s Stroke Recovery Program allows stroke survivors to continue on the road to recovery after other resources such as insurance-covered therapy are no longer available. The program is for anyone who has had a stroke and continues to have difficulty using an arm or hand for everyday activities. The goal is to increase independence in self-care through activities and exercises in a group setting to help improve movement for everyday tasks such as brushing teeth, buttoning a shirt or putting on shoes.
Classes are held 2-3 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays for eight-weeks in the rehab unit at Methodist Hospital. The Stroke Recovery Program is funded by grants from The Vons Foundation and Edison International.
For more information or to join the program, call the physical medicine department at 626-574-3630 Monday through Friday 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
