UCLA Arline and Henry Gluck Stroke Rescue Program
A Groundbreaking Approach
UCLA Health is the first medical system in the Western U.S. to offer a mobile stroke unit.
Every 40 seconds, someone in the U.S. experiences a stroke. It’s the fifth leading cause of death and the top contributor to long-term disability. Strokes caused by blood clots (ischemic) or brain bleeds (hemorrhagic) deprive the brain of oxygen-rich blood.
Every Second Counts
Philanthropy saving lives – that’s what the UCLA Health Mobile Stroke Unit is all about.
