The Cleveland Stroke Club was founded in 1974 by William M. Pitts at Highland View Hospital.
Later that year, the Club became independent. We are not associated with a hospital or any other organization. We may be the longest standing independent stroke club in the country.
The mission of the Cleveland Stroke Club is to enhance the lives of stroke survivors and their families through support, fellowship and socialization, education and advocacy.
The Cleveland Stroke Club is a nonprofit organization that is tax exempt under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code and classified as a public charity.
