Tele-Stroke Programs

Our Tele-stroke programs connects our neurologists to patients in our emergency departments and to patients in outlying hospitals’ emergency departments using a telemedicine cart and laptop connections. Neurologists are able to quickly and efficiently provide a diagnosis and best treatment options using the technology.

The level of recovery from strokes is often greatly impacted by what action is taken in the first few hours after a stroke is discovered. With telemedicine, a suspected stroke patient can be seen by a specialist and receive an initial treatment at the community hospital long before they could have been transported directly to our care.
