Stroke is a brain emergency. Every minute after a stroke, 1.9 million brain neurons are lost. This is why choosing a hospital with comprehensive stroke certification means the highest possible level of stroke care and the best outcomes. The Upstate Comprehensive Stroke Center, certified by DNV Healthcare Inc., has received annual quality achievement awards from the American Heart Association for quick treatment of stroke.
The Upstate Comprehensive Stroke Center has the proven resources, infrastructure, processes and highly trained staff in place to provide the very best in stroke care. For information on the Upstate Comprehensive Stroke Center, visit www.upstate.edu/stroke/.
