Council Proclaims American Stroke Month In Wellington

The Wellington Village Council proclaimed May 2018 as American Stroke Month on Tuesday, May 8. The council stressed the importance of everyone in the community becoming aware and familiar with common stroke symptoms and signs, as well as the extensive amount of resources available at Wellington Regional Medical Center to those who suffer from strokes. “It’s important to know that Wellington Regional is a comprehensive stroke center,” Vice Mayor Michael Drahos said. “There aren’t a lot of hospitals in the country, let alone in South Florida, that can offer the techniques that Wellington Regional does.” WRMC CEO Robbin Lee noted that there will be several events to spread stroke awareness throughout the village in the near future.
