State-of-the-Art Technology


HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital offers new, state-of-the-art technology that allows for faster, improved care for stroke patients. It’s called Telestroke. Telestroke is telemedicine technology that connects stroke patients and emergency department physicians through two-way audio-visual equipment with highly skilled stroke experts with the click of a button.

When Seconds Count

When a patient with stroke symptoms arrives at the emergency department, they receive immediate, hands-on care and assessment from the expert doctors and nurses on staff. Then, using Telestroke technology, a board-certified neurologist is contacted immediately. After the neurologist examines the patient, they work with the emergency department physician to develop a treatment plan for the patient to ensure the best outcomes possible.

If you are experiencing any signs or symptoms of a stroke, call 9-1-1.
