During a 12 hour period between Oct 3rd and 4th three stroke patients received rapid assessment and appropriate stroke care and now have a new lease on life!!! Congratulations and thank you.  The patients may not remember your name or face – but they certainly will remember what you did for them and their families.  Great Work Utica Fire, Bridgewater Fire,  Central Oneida County Ambulance and all involved in the care of these patients.
