Stroke care

According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), stroke is the leading cause of disability and fifth greatest cause of death in the U.S. If you think you or somebody you love is experiencing a stroke, call 911 immediately.

Patients experiencing a stroke require emergency medical attention as soon as possible after symptoms have been identified. The sooner medical intervention begins, the better chance for recovery. In some cases, fast treatment can decrease the amount of long-term damage.

Stroke symptoms

Recognizing the warning signs of stroke and seeking emergency care can help save a life. To recognize stroke symptoms, remember the F.A.S.T. check:

  • Face: Does one side of the face droop when the person smiles?
  • Arms: Does one arm drop down when both arms are raised?
  • Speech: Is speech slurred or confusing when you ask the person to repeat a sentence?
  • Time: If the answer to any of these is yes, call 911 right away, and tell the dispatcher you think someone is having a stroke.

Neurological rehabilitation

After a neurological diagnosis or event, patients often require rehabilitation. Our rehabilitation center is staffed with expert occupational and physical therapists who create a personalized therapy regimen for each neuro rehab patient.
