Advancing Lifesaving Stroke Care

June 5, 2018

Suburban is home to one of the most advanced stroke programs in the country. Specialists at the NIH Stroke Center at Suburban Hospital, a collaboration with the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke/National Institutes of Health, are available 24/7 to provide high-tech stroke care.

The most critical factor for limiting a stroke’s damage is time. Once a stroke begins, an estimated 1.9 million brain cells die every minute. Self-identifying symptoms and seeking immediate help are key to improving outcomes.
