  • Health First Neurosciences has two doctors who are fellowship trained in diagnostic and interventional neuroradiology. They are also the only two doctors in Brevard and Indian River counties to provide minimally invasive endovascular surgery on brain aneurysm repair
  • Health First's Holmes Regional Medical Center has had excellent outcomes on our patients who underwent thrombectomy (removal of clot from the brain for stroke). In the past two years, we have been able to remove the clot out of more than 85% of the patients with no major complications of the procedure. More than 80% of the patients either went home or went to rehabilitation due to excellent outcomes. We have been able to transfer stroke patients from other hospitals in the county and beyond to provide good outcome without disability.
