When it comes to Stroke, BE FAST – Call 911 Right Away
A stroke occurs when a blood vessel in the brain is blocked (ischemic stroke) or breaks (hemorrhagic stroke). During a stroke, nearly two million brain cells die every minute, which makes it critical to get the right care FAST in order to limit long-term disability and even save a life.
Huntsville Memorial Hospital is a Primary Stroke Center certified by the Center for Improvement in Healthcare Quality (CIHQ).
