A Mother's Story 

We could tell you more about the exemplary work of our Stroke Team, the Emergency Department, and everyone here at BID-Needham who know the signs of stroke and the urgency required to put a treatment plan in place, but we think patient Julie Redlitz says it best in this video. Hear how this mother of three survived a stroke after coming to BID-Needham. This is the story of one patient and how she was surrounded by a community of caring at BID-Needham.
