How We Treat Strokes

When you are having a stroke, every minute that lapses before treatment can mean the difference between losing and saving critical brain functions. When our team is notified by fire rescue that a stroke patient is en route to the hospital, we mobilize and are ready to quickly evaluate and offer treatment.

Our stroke teams can:

  • administer thrombolytics (clot-dissolving drugs)
  • perform neurointerventional and neurosurgery procedures
  • offer patients a wide range of rehabilitation services

Our Awards and Accolades for Stroke Treatment

TargetStrokeHonorRollElitePlusDesignationWe have received several awards for making sure that stroke patients receive a clot-dissolving drug, called tPA, shortly after arriving at our emergency room. In a 12-month period, at least 75 percent of stroke patients at the Memorial Regional Hospital emergency room received tPA within 60 minutes of arriving. In addition, at least 50 percent of stroke patients received tPA within 45 minutes of arriving.

Some of our awards include:

  • Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke Gold Plus Achievement Award with Target: Stroke℠ Honor Roll Elite Plus designation (Memorial Regional Hospital and Memorial Hospital West)
  • Gold Seal of Approval as Primary Stroke Center from the Joint Commission (Memorial Regional Hospital, Memorial Hospital West and Memorial Hospital Pembroke)
