When you experience symptoms of a stroke, get to Lea Regional Medical Center. We are certified by The Joint Commission as a Primary Stroke Center. That's important, because these accredited stroke centers have demonstrated expertise in the early assessment, rapid diagnosis and treatment of stroke emergencies according to The Joint Commission.
Stroke, also called a brain attack, occurs when blood flow to the brain is disrupted. Disruption in blood flow is caused when either a blood clot blocks one of the vital blood vessels in the brain (ischemic stroke), or when a blood vessel in the brain bursts, spilling blood into surrounding tissues (hemorrhagic stroke).
Our Stroke Team collaborates with local EMS to provide patients with quick access to our advanced diagnostic and treatment technology. If you think you or a loved one may be having a stroke, dial 911 immediately. Do not drive yourself to the hospital.
