Memorial Hospital of Carbon County is the newest location to join Wyoming Medical Center’s Telestroke Program.
Telemedicine is a rapidly growing field and one that compliments rural areas such as Wyoming very well. This service provides access to specialists and technological advances that otherwise would not be possible in small hospitals. The partnership with Wyoming Medical Center allows us to build a system of care that can overcome geographic barriers and maximize the critical time frames involved with stroke cases.
EMS Staff are now able to begin a pre-hospital/triage stroke assessment that activates a Code Stroke immediately with Emergency Room Staff. Patient history, vitals and CT Scans are relayed virtually and allows the neurologist to
be involved early and streamline treatment.
May is National Stroke Awareness Month. Now, more than ever, it is important for people to maintain their health and know the symptoms of a stroke. Seconds matter and Memorial Hospital of Carbon County is here to provide fast, efficient treatment in your time of need.
