A Stroke of Luck
Prompt intervention and expert care helped a young woman recover from stroke. Jenny Santaguido, a healthy, vibrant 43-year-old woman, presumed she was just having a severe migraine after she left work last September. She soon learned that a stroke can strike a person of any age - including herself. As the region's first hospital to receive designation as a Comprehensive Stroke Center, Allegheny General Hospital provides the most advanced services for stroke patients such as Jenny. AGH is part of the Allegheny Health Network, which also features certified Primary Stroke Centers at Forbes Hospital in Monroeville, Pa., Jefferson Hospital in Jefferson Hills, Pa. and Saint Vincent Hospital in Erie, Pa.
