Did you know:

  • The rate of stroke in WNY is 23% higher than the national rate?
  • In WNY, we suffer three times as many stroke related deaths as residents of New York City?

Stroke occurs when blood flow is blocked to an area of the brain. But, much of the damage caused by a stroke can be prevented by watching for warning signs, and getting early treatment. Area doctors are treating stroke patients with new technology resulting in better, and faster recovery.

If you or someone you love has been touched by stroke, or if you want to know more about preventing, treating and recovering from stroke, join our experts at this FREE dinner seminar. Stroke physicians will answer your questions and discuss the latest in prevention, treatments, and life post-stroke.

When a stroke strikes and every second counts, experience matters, and the best stroke center is the one closest to you. The area’s premier stroke centers are just minutes away in Catholic Health’s stroke care network – Western New York’s largest network of New York State Designated Stroke Centers.
