ST. MARYS – Premier Health will be expanding its TeleStroke Network to include Grand Lake Health System’s Joint Township District Memorial Hospital.
The TeleStroke Network is a two-way audio/video link that provides patients with access to a neurologist, an emergency physician and caregiver to evaluate and discuss his or her medical situation.
The off-site neurologist will have access to the patient’s vital signs, X-rays and other health information, including their electronic medical record.
“Collaboration with the Premier Health TeleStroke Network is a logical next step as we continue to grow our Neurology Center with Drs. Natasha Alexander and Peter Maceroni,” said president and chief executive officer of Grand Lake Health System Kevin Harlan in a news release. “This collaboration will allow the Grand Lake Health System to continue meeting our community’s needs.”
