Brandon Regional Hospital has assembled a team of highly skilled medical professionals - including emergency physicians, surgeons, neurologists, nurses, therapists, laboratory and pharmacy staff, and radiologists - who are specially trained to respond quickly and completely to the needs of a stroke patient. Our Primary Stroke Center is certified by the Joint Commission (JC).

If you notice one or more of these signs, don't wait. Stroke is a medical emergency. Call 911.

  • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body
  • Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding
  • Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
  • Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination
  • Sudden, servere headache with no known cause

Stroke is the leading cause of long-term disability among adults in the United States and the third leading cause of death (behind diseases of the heart and all forms of cancer). Nearly 780,000 people suffer new or recurrent stroke each year, and almost 165,000 die of the condition.
