CLARENCE RENNO, above left, was watching TV after dinner at home in Wishram when his wife, Carol, noticed symptoms of a stroke and called 9-1-1. Her fast action, coupled with aggressive treatment and partnerships between Mid-Columbia Medical Center and Oregon Health and Science University helped restore the function he needed to live his life.

Friday, Feb. 15, started out as an ordinary day for Carol and Clarence Renno until something a bit extraordinary helped save Clarence’s life. He is alive and able to talk about the experience today because of a combination of his wife’s quick action and a robotic medical device that allowed specialists to examine him from 80 miles away.
