Do you know what to do when someone has a stroke?
When a stroke occurs, know the symptoms, act FAST, and get help from one of our Bay Area hospitals.
The American Heart Association (AHA) estimates that approximately 780,000 strokes occur each year. Of this, 600,000 are new strokes and approximately 180,000 are recurrent strokes. Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States. At Dignity Health hospitals, we are equipped and qualified to treat all stroke patients.
