Acute Stroke Treatment: Time is of the Essence

Stroke is the fifth cause of death and a leading cause of adult disability in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Landmark studies show that for every 15 minutes faster a stroke patient receives treatment, the chances of a fatal outcome are reduced by five percent and the likelihood of going home from the hospital increases.

Our Comprehensive Stroke Center, in collaboration with the Emergency and Radiology departments, has invested a tremendous amount of effort to reduce the amount of time it takes to deliver critical therapies once a stroke patient arrives at the Emergency Department.

Please join Dr. Andrey Lima to learn more about strokes, important warning signs and advanced treatments available at Memorial.

Lecture will be held in the Main Auditorium at Memorial Regional Hospital.

  • Refreshments will be served.
  • Free valet parking.
