Many in U.S. Lack Access to Advanced Stroke Care
A new computer model shows more than 33% of U.S. residents would need to travel more than 60 minutes by car or ambulance to reach a medical center that provides the best stroke care. The model assumes that each state has up to 20 hospitals capable of providing such care, which currently is not a reality.
