The onset of stroke is sudden, and its effects are debilitating. Our Stroke Team will work rapidly to minimize damage and improve your chances for a full recovery. Knowing the warning signs of a stroke is critical to saving your life:

If you have any of the following warning signs for stroke, call 911 immediately:

  • Sudden weakness or numbness of the face, arm, or leg-especially along one side of the body.
  • Sudden confusion.
  • Sudden dimness or loss of vision, particularly in one eye.
  • Sudden difficulty speaking or trouble understanding speech.
  • Sudden severe headache with no known cause.
  • Unexplained dizziness, unsteadiness, or sudden falls, especially with any of the other signs.
Recognizing and responding to these symptoms right away could save a life – maybe even your own. Remember, call 911 immediately if you see anyone experiencing any of these symptoms, or are experiencing them yourself.
