“ When you or a family member or friend is having a stroke, speed is the ultimate issue. Getting the right treatment as quickly as possible is the determining factor regarding recovery. Not only did I have my baby at McAlester Regional, I was also an ER nurse working with stroke patients as they arrived. Can you imagine if you had to travel for hours? The hospital’s ER is ready and equipped to handle stroke emergencies and also offers excellent physical therapy and rehab to hasten the recovery process. Excellence in heathcare and close to home? That pretty much says it all.”
