Stroke Program

Stroke is a medical emergency that requires immediate attention. Also known as a brain attack, stroke is the third highest cause of death, right behind heart disease and cancer, and the number one cause of long-term disability. According to the American Stroke Association, an estimated 600,000 Americans suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year, and an estimated 160,000 will die.
