When Dennis felt queasy and light-headed, his wife, Joyce, knew something was wrong. She called 9-1-1 and was told to rush Dennis to the Swedish Southwest ER in Littleton. The team of experts at Southwest ER recognized that Dennis was having a stroke and quickly arranged for his transportation to the Swedish Medical Center main campus in Englewood.
