Time lost... is brain lost.
During a stroke, an estimated two million brain cells die per minute. Evidence shows that the quicker a stroke patient is evaluated and treated, the better his or her outcome and recovery will be. Thanks to Telestroke, HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital can treat stroke patients quicker, reducing or eliminating long-term stroke impacts.
If you are experiencing any signs or symptoms of a stroke, call 9-1-1.
