They have remained the leading cause of death in the world over the past 15 years. Aim: To describe the financial amount paid by the Unified Health System for stroke hospitalizations in the Rio Grande do Sul State (RS, Brazil) from 2007 to 2017. Methods: Secondary data were collected from the Hospital Information System, a database that aggregates data from all hospital admissions paid by the Brazilian national public healthcare system (Unified Healthcare System - SUS). Findings: Considering 2007 as a database, in 2017 there was an increase of 11,9% in the number of hospitalizations for stroke, 26.1% in relation to the total paid by SUS for hospitalizations and 12,7% of the average amount paid. The highest number of hospitalizations (10,119) occurred in 2016, the highest total cost (US$ 5,188,404.28) in 2014, and the average amount paid for hospitalization was higher in 2012 (US $ 612.21). Mortality rates ranged from 16.74% in 2007 to 13.45% in 2017, with a downward trend. Conclusion: The increase of 11.9% in the number of hospitalizations for stroke and 26.1% in relation to the costs total paid for SUS for hospitalizations was expected, considering the ongoing demographic and epidemiological transition.
