Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death and the leading cause of adult disability in the United States. While the risk of stroke increases as you age, strokes can happen to anyone at any time.
Paul Goen, MD, medical director at the St. Joseph Health Regional Hospital Emergency Center, said, “The faster a patient receives treatment from the first sign of stroke, the better the outcome.”
