Stroke Care When it Matters Most

When it comes to stroke, every second counts. From initial diagnostics and intervention to ongoing care, having expertise close at hand can dramatically affect recovery.

Patients suffer more than 780,000 strokes a year in the US and stroke remains one of the leading causes of death. Medical evidence demonstrates that the faster you are treated after initial symptoms, the greater your chance of recovery.  

Sky Ridge participates in the Stroke Alert program with our EMS partners in the field. Stroke Alert, developed at HealthONE in collaboration with physicians and EMS agencies, enables first responders to diagnose, transport and treat stroke victims and minimize the effects of stroke.
