Yousef M. Mohammad, MD, MSC

Excellence in Care Award Recipient

Dr. Mohammad was nominated for VDF’s Excellence in Care award by Mr. and Mrs. A. N. Hardy of Grove City, Ohio, for the exceptional care he provided to their daughter, Tiffany, who suffered a stroke in August 2004. In their nomination letter, Mr. and Mrs. Hardy wrote of Dr. Mohammad’s relentless effort “to find the cause of Tiffany’s stroke.”

Only 26 years old when she suffered her stroke, Tiffany was given a 50 percent chance of survival. Dr. Mohammad brought together a team of physicians to help with Tiffany’s care. During the days and weeks that followed her stroke, Dr. Mohammad continued to coordinate the efforts of the specialists and to monitor Tiffany’s treatments, tests, and condition – from the surgical intensive-care unit to the short-term-care facility to the rehabilitation facility. Tiffany continues to make progress every day, and Mr. and Mrs. Hardy credit Dr. Mohammad for saving their daughter’s life.

Dr. Mohammad is an Assistant Professor of Neurology, section of Stroke and Cerebrovascular Diseases and director of the Stroke Fellowship Program at the Ohio State University Medical Center. He was awarded his MS and MD degrees from the American University of Beirut Faculty of Medicine in 1986 and 1989. Dr. Mohammad’s research interests are in the area of cerebrovascular disease, including the clinical areas of acute treatment of stroke and stroke prevention.
