Stroke

Stroke is a serious, life threatening condition that requires immediate medical care. The appropriateness and speed of medical care patients receive can mean the difference between recovery and severe neurological damage. From early intervention treatments in the Emergency Room to the 24-bed Rehabilitation Unit located on 2 North, SGMC provides comprehensive care to help patients that have suffered from a stroke.

What is a Stroke?

A stroke, also called a "brain attack," can happen to anyone at any time. It occurs when blood flow to an area of the brain is cut off. This interruption causes brain cells to be deprived of oxygen and begin to die. Abilities controlled by that area of the brain, such as speech, movement and memory, can be affected. The severity of the stroke is determined by where the stroke occurs in the brain and how much the brain is damaged.
