The Swedish Cerebrovascular Center is a leader in treating conditions that affect the blood vessels in the brain. The Swedish Stroke Support Group provides a place of support, education and awareness to stroke survivors and serve as a resource for family members and care partners. It is our goal and purpose to lend support to each other, bolster our education, learn from one another and raise awareness of stroke and stroke risk factors in our community. The care team at the Swedish Stroke Program has established a support group for patients that have been diagnosed and treated for a brain aneurysm, stroke (hemorrhagic or ischemic), and/or arteriovenous malformation (AVM). The group is open to patients, families, and care partners. This is a welcoming place for you to meet and share with others who have been through similar experiences.

The goal of the support group meetings is to help alleviate fears and concerns through education and group discussions. Each meeting features a speaker and group discussion.

Provider Referrals

Your patient may be at higher risk for a cerebral aneurysm if they have two first degree relatives (sibling, parent, grandparent) with a history of cerebral aneurysm.

If your patient is at higher risk, please order an MR Angiogram (MRA) or CT Angiogram (CTA) to screen the patient for an aneurysm and then refer them to the Cerebrovascular Center, if necessary. 

To refer a patient to the Swedish Cerebrovascular Center, call 206-320-3470 or fax your referral to  206-320-3471.

Urgent Cases

Our care team accepts patient transfers 24/7 from providers and hospitals throughout the Pacific Northwest. To facilitate an urgent patient transfer, call the Swedish Transfer Center: 866-470-4233.
