According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, stroke causes more serious long-term disabilities than any other disease, and is the fourth leading cause of death in the United States.
St. John's Pleasant Valley Hospital is a certified Primary Stroke Center. We have an acute stroke team, an integrated emergency room, a dedicated stroke unit, and we offer neuroimaging services. At St. John's, we are committed to treat stroke patients quickly and improve patient outcomes.
It is important to learn the signs of stroke so you are ready if you or a loved one ever suffers a stroke. Always call 9-1-1 immediately. The difference between a recovery from stroke and a lasting disability depends significantly on response time.
