Crouse Hospital has appointed Adham Samy Kamel, MD, as medical director for its stroke program. In this role, Dr. Kamel, who most recently served as interim stroke director at University Hospital in Syracuse, will oversee the continued development and direction of Crouse’s stroke program.
The addition of Dr. Kamel represents a key element in the ongoing development of the hospital’s neurosciences service line, which continues to be strategic focus for the hospital.
A strong stroke program is a critically important component of a comprehensive neuroscience service line. “Crouse has been a NYS-designated stroke center since 2007 and we are looking forward to bringing the program to the next level under the leadership of Dr. Kamel,” states Crouse CEO Kimberly Boynton.
A native of Cairo, Dr. Kamel received his medical training from Cairo University Hospital and completed his residency at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh. He also completed fellowships in vascular neurology at Upstate Medical University and Allegheny General, and in electrophysiology at Upstate. Board certified in vascular neurology and psychiatry and neurology, Dr. Kamel is widely published in the areas of neurology and acute stroke intervention.
