Stroke

Stroke Resource Program

Stroke is the number five cause of death, and a leading cause of adult disability in the United States.

Doylestown Hospital is designated as a Stroke Resource Center by the American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association, and is also a Joint Commission-certified Primary Stroke Center.

A stroke is an interruption of the blood supply to any part of the brain. When part of the brain does not get blood flow due to a blocked or ruptured blood vessel, that part of the brain starts to die. A stroke is sometimes called a brain attack. Approximately 795,000 Americans each year suffer a new or recurrent stroke. That means, on average, a stroke occurs every 40 seconds.

At Doylestown Health, a stroke alert system is in place to provide the most expedient stroke care.
