Since 2014, the Stroke Program has been designating stroke-ready hospitals across the state so that all Minnesotans will ultimately live within 30 minutes of a hospital that is equipped and ready to provide the best stroke care possible.

Know how to spot a stroke

This system works best when people know the stroke signs and can act quickly to get that person care.

That’s why we’re encouraging hospitals and health systems across Minnesota to promote the signs and symptoms of a stroke  and to call 9-1-1 to get to the hospital with the Every Second Counts Stroke Awareness Campaign. Click Here for Free Resources

With a unified, statewide campaign, the Minnesota Stroke Program hopes that more Minnesotans will take the best first step for the best outcomes.

For World Stroke Day and throughout the year, FREE resources are available at Every Second Counts Stroke Awareness Campaign. Click Here for Free Resources
