Meridian Stroke Care

Our Team Is Always Ready to Help

Anderson’s Stroke Care Excellence Team, including caregivers from the ambulance to the emergency room, begins treatment immediately to decrease the effects of a stroke.

Act Fast

At any sign of a stroke — slurred speech, trouble seeing, dizziness, numbness or weakness in face, arm or leg — call 911 and head to Anderson ER. Our continuum of care includes specially trained ambulance staff, physicians, nurses and therapists.

Know the warning signs and symptoms:

Act F.A.S.T.

F for Face = half smile
A for Arms = one-sided weakness
S for Speech = slurred speech is a sign
T for Time = Head to the Anderson ER fast; immediate care makes all the difference

At the first sign of any of these symptoms, call 911 and ask to be taken to Anderson Regional Medical Center’s Emergency Room.
