When it comes to stroke care, every moment matters. That's because a stroke can cause much damage, such as long-term disability.
If you're having a stroke, our EMS partners start assessing your condition even before you arrive at Crouse Hospital.
And because we’ve streamlined our care delivery process, once you get here, you’re taken directly to our advanced CT imaging center, where our team of stroke specialists and clinical experts diagnose and immediately begin treatment.
Patients needing higher-level care are quickly routed to one of two dedicated hybrid OR suites equipped with the region’s most state-of-the-art stroke care technology.
The New York State Department of Health selected Crouse Hospital as an official state-designated Stroke Center because our dedicated stroke team is organized to respond in the most efficient, patient-supportive manner to provide comprehensive care for stroke patients.
In fact, in 2010, Crouse was the first area hospital to earn "Gold Plus" status for stroke care treatment from the American Stroke Association. Crouse also earned this status in 2012 and again in 2013 and 2014.
What does this mean? Better and faster care for people who suffer a stroke – where fast treatment can make all the difference.Because saving moments saves more memory, mobility and lives. When it’s about time, say “Take me to Crouse.”
If you suspect someone is having a stroke or other type of acute injury or illness, call 911 immediately.
