When you have a stroke, every second counts. During a stroke, there is a lack of blood flow to the brain, which causes damage. The faster you get treatment, the better chance you have of minimizing damage and making a more complete recovery.
Stroke Care You Can Count On
New Hanover Regional Medical Center’s Stroke Program is recognized for fast and expert stroke treatment.
