More Orange County stroke victims are receiving advanced treatment and cutting their resulting disabilities in half, thanks to an innovative network of specially designated stroke receiving centers, the county’s medical services director reported. Strokes are the third largest cause of death in the U.S., and an average of 6,800 strokes happen in Orange County every year, Dr. Samuel Stratton told the Orange County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday.
