Time is critical when someone is experiencing a stroke. The Emergency Services team at Allen County Regional Hospital is ready to respond quickly and effectively. Our physicians, nurses, clinicians and pharmacists are organized for a team response to strokes.
With stroke, time is brain. The faster patients are diagnosed and treated, the better their chances of recovery.
