As a trauma surgeon, Dr. Ronald Stewart never expected to be leading a community-wide effort to build a stroke system. But in 2008, that’s exactly what happened as San Antonio was the only major city in Texas without a stroke center. As chair of STRAC, the region’s advisory council on emergency care, he found himself partnered with community advocate Suzanne Hildebrand to make the case - this community deserved best-in-class stroke care. At one point Dr. Stewart told a room full of doctors and hospital leaders:

"You know what? I have atrial fibrillation. I could have a stroke and need you guys someday." In 2011, he did.

Hear the rest of the story and celebrate how a community came together for Dr. Stewart, for all of us.
