Every year, 795,000 new and recurrent strokes occur in America – of which 137,000 are fatal. Time is brain, and too often stroke patients don’t receive the treatment they need, when they need it or where they need it. A strong system of care is one that ensures patients receive the Right Care at the Right Place at the Right Time. If every state implemented strong systems of care, we could help reduce heart disease and stroke deaths among Americans.
