Winner of The Daily Journal's Innovator in Technology Progress Award for our new state-of-the-art Telestroke technology.
Nearly 130,000 people will die from a stroke, making it the fourth leading cause of death in the United States.
Presence St. Mary’s Hospital wanted to change this statistic; therefore, we launched our new state-of-the-art Telestroke technology.
Telestroke allows for consultation by vascular neurologist specializing in stroke to be brought to the patient’s bedside. This 2-way advanced audio-visual technology allows for the endovascular neurologist to assess and interact with the patient, their family in addition to collaboratively consulting with the ED physician and RN.
