Do you know the signs and symptoms of a stroke?
The Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada has adopted 'FAST' as it's tool in the education and recognition of stroke.
If you or someone with you experiences any of these signs, call 9-1-1 or your local emergency number immediately. Acting quickly can improve your survival and recovery. Do not drive yourself or the person having a stroke to the hospital – an ambulance will get you to the best hospital for stroke care.
What to expect at the hospital: The paramedics will take you to the closest hospital with a specialized program for stroke care. They can call ahead so hospital staff are prepared for your arrival.

About The CHC - Who we are
The Port Hope Community Health Centre at 99 Toronto Road, is a community-centred primary health care facility, and member of The Association of Ontario Health Centres (AOHC), the advocacy organization for non-profit, community governed, multidisciplinary primary health care models. With a vision rooted in providing comprehensive primary care services, delivered by a interdisciplinary team of professionals to promote healthy communities, we offer a range of community-based services and respond to health-related community concerns.
We believe that effective primary health care addresses the social determinants of health, including social inclusion, access to shelter, education, income and employment security, food and stable eco-systems. It encompasses primary care, illness prevention and health promotion, using community development toward building healthy public policy in supportive environments. Our care model is highly effective for all Ontarians. It is an important resource for people who encounter a diverse range of access barriers such as culture, ethnicity, geographical isolation, literacy, poverty, physical disabilities and race.VisionHealthy people, healthy relationships and healthy communitiesGeneral InformationWe are now offering services from our new location at 99 Toronto Road.
