Stroke Care

Strokes are the leading cause of disability in the United States, one occurring every 40 seconds, and taking a life approximately every four minutes. There are treatments that we can give to reverse the damage of stroke but these medications can only be given within a small time window of the beginning of symptoms. The sooner we can care for you after a stroke, the better your outcome will be. Whether you need stroke care now or stroke rehabilitation services,we can help.
