Stroke – Every Second Matters!
Dr. Francisco Albert, hospitalist at Lexington Medical Center, was on WLTX this month talking about stroke. South Carolina is in the region of the country known as the “Stroke Belt” because of our high incidence of stroke. Lexington Medical Center is certified as a Primary Stroke Center and has won the “Get With the Guidelines – Gold Plus Award” for stroke form the American Heart Association for its excellent care of stroke patients.
