Cal-Neuro Network Transfer

Take the Next Step

Your call to 1-888-MY-CAL-NEuro (1-888-692-2563) will be immediately triaged by a registered nurse to the appropriate attending physician. If indicated, the Network team will arrange patient transfer.

A new resource for medical practitioners offers vital support when patients experience an acute neurological event.

What is Cal-Neuro Network?

Cal-Neuro Network is a multi-hospital collaborative established by Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital to enable patients with stroke and other emergent neurovascular events to receive the most advanced treatment available, regardless of where they live.

Why a Network?

Investments in advanced technology and human resources are not feasible for every hospital, yet every patient should have access to the highest level of care possible. A Certified Stroke Center, Cottage has extended its resources into the surrounding communities to provide that opportunity.

What types of cases are treated?

Care is offered for ischemic stroke, intracerebral hemorrhage, systemic arterial hypertension, arteriovenous malformation, brain aneurysm, and other neurovascular emergencies.

When should I call?

First, consult your local on-call neurologist or neurosurgeon. Then contact the Network regarding the closest Certified Stroke Center.

How do I access the Network?

Your call to 1-888-MY-CAL-NEuro (1-888-692-2563) will be immediately triaged by a registered nurse to the appropriate attending physician. If indicated, the Network team will arrange patient transfer.
