Accessibility Statement

We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience. To do so, we are actively working with consultants to update the website by increasing its accessibility and usability by persons who use assistive technologies such as automated tools, keyboard-only navigation, and screen readers.

We are working to have the website conform to the relevant standards of the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board, as well as the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These standards and guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. We believe that conformance with these standards and guidelines will help make the website more user friendly for all people.

Our efforts are ongoing. While we strive to have the website adhere to these guidelines and standards, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage, please contact so that we may be of assistance.

Thank you. We hope you enjoy using our website.

Stroke Support Groups

Connect and Get Help

Are you or a loved one currently undergoing or have you recently undergone treatment for stroke? You don’t have to go through it alone. Valley Baptist Medical Center in Harlingen offers the “H.O.P.E.” (Haven Offering Patient Encouragement) Stroke Support Group for stroke patients, family members and caregivers.

H.O.P.E. Stroke Support Group meetings act as a source of discussion and education. Meetings vary in content, but have previously consisted of stroke prevention tips, inspirational survivor stories and even fun and games!

Meetings are held monthly, and are free and open to the public. They are generally held on the third Tuesday of each month from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in VBMC—Harlingen’s Woodward Conference Center (South Tower Entrance). To register for an upcoming meeting or for more information, please contact Tanmei Dang at (956) 389-1681 or
