A "FAST" Response to Stroke Can Reduce Long-Term Damage
Date:5/7/2013

ions are at a higher risk of having a stroke even after making the proper lifestyle changes. These include adults 55 years of age or older, African-Americans and Hispanics, those with a family history of stroke, and people who have already had a stroke or a transient ischemic attack (mini stroke). In addition, women are more likely to die from a stroke than men, although attacks are more common in men.

NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital treats one of the highest volumes of stroke and cerebrovascular disease patients in the world and the highest in NYC. The hospital has three state-designated Primary Stroke Centers. Stroke patients treated at high-volume centers with specialty-trained physicians have the best survival and recovery rates.

In addition, NewYork-Presbyterian's Stroke Centers have been awarded the Gold Plus award from American Heart Association (AHA) and American Stroke Association (ASA) for exceeding quality measures related to stroke treatment.
