Medical center of Aurora
Stroke coordinator
Suzanne Clausen, np-c

Suzanne Clausen, NP-C joined us this week to discuss stroke and the outstanding program at The Medical Center of Aurora.  She is the Stroke Coordinator and educator about stroke.  

A stroke is a medical emergency where blood flow to the brain is either reduced or stopped, depriving brain tissue of essential oxygen and nutrients. A stroke may cause loss in brain function and affect movement and speech.

The Medical Center of Aurora (TMCA) is a Primary Stroke Center, one of eight in Colorado. This certification demonstrates our excellence in stroke care. At TMCA, our comprehensive stroke care includes:

  • Stroke alert program
  • 24/7 on-call neurology coverage
  • 24/7 neurosurgical services for hemorrhagic and ischemic stroke patients
  • A specially trained skull-base neurosurgeon specializing in cerebrovascular services, including aneurysms and arteriovenous malformations
  • Interventional neuroradiology services
  • Stroke support group
  • Neurorehabilitation
  • AirLife Denver for rapid transport to our medical center

Suzanne shared a lot of information during her presentation.  Please see link for all the details about stroke.


Suzanne, thanks for sharing this life saving information.
