Surrounded by Lake Erie, Lake St. Clair, and the Detroit River, Windsor Essex has the distinction of being the southernmost part of Canada. It has a population of approximately 400, 000 spread among its communities of Amherstburg, Essex, Kingsville, Lakeshore, Lasalle, Leamington, Pelee Island, Tecumseh and Windsor. The border city of Windsor is the largest city in both Essex County and the South West LHIN, with an population of close to  211, 000.  Approximately 500 people have a stroke in Windsor Essex each year

As the designated District Stroke Centre, Windsor Regional Hospital Ouellette Campus (WRH OC) provides specialized services to majority of stroke patients in Windsor and Essex County. Services for stroke and TIA patients are coordinated through WRH OC, including carotid revascularization surgery for residents throughout LHIN 1. The hospital  has neurologists on staff directing expert care for area stroke patients; Dr. Michael Winger is the physician lead and Medical Director for the DSC. The dedicated and expert multidisciplinary stroke-care team has strongly supported consistent, evidence-based care for our stroke patients.

Inpatient rehabilitation services for Windsor-Essex are offered through Hotel-Dieu Grace Healthcare (HDGH).

We are excited about our new Stroke Community Navigator that will be joining the District Stroke Centre Team in January, 2015 . She will be based at Hotel Dieu Grace Healthcare and her role will be coordinating transitions from rehab services, secondary prevention and lifestyle management and assisting with community reengagement for stroke survivors.

WRH, in conjunction with HDGH, LDMH, and other community agencies, is committed to providing a comprehensive best practice program to help improve stroke outcomes, while providing a continuum of care, support and critical therapies for victims of stroke and their families.
