This Stroke Awareness Month, we are highlighting one of our best and brightest stroke team members, Jason Stiles, MSN, RN, CEN.
Jason serves UofL Health – Stroke as the system director of stroke services. For nearly four years he has worked to develop a comprehensive stroke program within our organization and grow the resources available to stroke patients across our region.
“My main purpose is to strengthen relationships between our hospitals, emergency medical services and the community to lessen the negative impact of stroke,” Jason said. “I lead a team that works on stroke prevention, recognition, acute treatment and aftercare for our patients.”
His day-to-day responsibilities allow him to create relationships with team members at several of our facilities. Jason credits his fellow team members and their admirable passion to care for others as his favorite thing about UofL Health. He takes pride in working for an organization that prioritizes patient-centered care at the core of its mission and development.
His goal is to offer the most advanced stroke care to our community and ensure all patients have access to rapid stroke care when in need.
An Indiana native, Jason earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Southern Indiana. He describes himself as a “mechanic at heart” and enjoys restoring classic cars in his spare time.
While he’s not a big karaoke fan, he’s typically blaring classic rock or old country music while cruising with the windows down.
If Jason could learn any skill, he’d love to take a few lessons in gourmet cooking. He could eat anything with meat in it but especially loves a nice steak from time to time.
Jason doesn’t watch much television; instead, you’ll find him reading a book or listening to a podcast. He loves listening to Unexplained Mysteries or catching up on his latest read, The Energy Bus by Jon Gordon.
If you see Jason around, be sure to say “hello” and ask him about the car he’s currently working on. He would love to get to know you!
