At Baptist Health Care, our top priority continues to be the health and safety of our patients, visitors, team members and community. Our organization is actively taking precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Following CDC guidance, Baptist Health Care has decided to postpone our Stroke Symposium to Friday, Oct. 16, 2020. If you have questions, please contact the Baptist Health Care Stroke Program, 850.469.2479.
More stroke patients may now be eligible for treatment, but the first step is still up to you: Call 911.
Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death and the No. 1 cause of disability in adults.
The type of treatment depends on the type of stroke.
