Act Quickly

A stroke is a medical emergency. If you are experiencing any signs of stroke, do not hesitate to call 9-1-1 immediately even during the pandemic. Do not drive.

Our hospital is prepared to care for you. Delaying treatment could be detrimental to your well-being. People who are treated more quickly (even 15 minutes faster) after having a stroke have significantly improved health outcomes. Know the signs. Act quickly.
