Telemedicine for fast stroke diagnosis and treatment
Patients at our hospital have 24/7 access to stroke care, both through neurologists on-call at our hospital and through the TriStar Health network's telemedicine program. Within minutes of arriving for emergency care, you can receive a remote consultation from a TriStar Health neurologist. The rapid availability of a neurologist's diagnosis helps ensure you receive treatment as soon as possible. This is key to minimizing the long-term effects of a stroke.
Through our neurorehabilitation program, patients have access to a team of therapists specializing in neurological care. Because conditions such as stroke impact the central nervous system, patients may experience complications that make independent living a challenge. For example, neurological conditions can affect a person's speech and balance.
We tailor our neurorehabilitation program to these effects and to your specific diagnosis. You will work with a team of physical, speech and occupational therapists according to your unique needs.
Rehabilitation is offered as an outpatient procedure. Outpatient services are available during the week or on Saturdays. If you are arriving for neurological rehab, you can check-in at the hospital's main admitting area by the front entrance.
