Sometimes you can barely make it across town in 9 minutes. But at the Illinois Neurological Institute Stroke Center at OSF Saint Francis – that’s how long it recently took us to save a patient’s life and millions of brain cells.
9 minutes - that’s the fastest stroke treatment time in the area and one of the fastest in the world. Yes, the world.
How did our hospital and stroke team make this happen in just 9 minutes when across the country treatment times average more than 75 minutes? It comes down this…the stroke team is trained, experienced and ready when stroke patients need us.
