Stroke can devastate lives. This is what we’re doing to change that.

Did you catch our new TV spot, which debuted during the Super Bowl?

It’s all about how we’re revolutionizing stroke treatment in Kentucky – and for patients everywhere.

Our stroke physicians and researchers are hot on the trail of new treatments that don’t just stop stroke in its tracks – they help reverse the damage that’s already happened in the brain. And these treatments are available now – only at UK HealthCare.

Stroke is the fifth-leading cause of death in Kentucky and in the United States, and until now, those who did survive were often severely disabled. They may have lived, but the stroke changed their lives forever.

These new treatments are working to change that, to not just save lives from stroke but to restore those lives to what they were before and get people back to living and doing the things they love.

We’re incredibly proud of the new TV spot, but there’s so much more to the story that we just couldn’t fit into 60 seconds. Visit our website to see videos from our stroke experts, learn more about our Comprehensive Stroke Center status and why it matters, and to learn what you can do to help prevent stroke in yourself or others.

When a stroke happens, getting help fast can make all the difference. But so can getting that help at a hospital that’s on the leading edge of advances in stroke treatment.

Through education, prevention, treatment and research, together we can stop the scourge of stroke in Kentucky. It’s our mission.
