Joint Commission Certified Primary Stroke Center
About 795,000 Americans each year suffer a new or recurrent stroke, according to the American Stroke Association. That means, on average, a stroke occurs every 40 seconds. Stroke kills more than 137,000 people a year. That's about 1 of every 18 deaths. It's the No. 4 cause of death. On average, every 4 minutes someone dies of stroke. MountainView Hospital stroke specialists are working to change those statistics with help from the American Heart/Stroke Association and other health care organizations.
If you are experiencing chest pain or any other emergency...call 911 immediately.

Through the program, a trained team of doctors and nurses works to identify stroke symptoms as quickly as possible, beginning with emergency medical service workers in the field. By the time a patient arrives at the hospital, the Stroke Team is ready. The center also increases education and awareness of stroke symptoms to both healthcare professionals and the community.
