Within approximately 15 minutes of arrival at Saddleback Medical Center’s Emergency Department, stroke patients have a board-certified neurologist at their bedside thanks to highly advanced technology. The patient and specialist, or tele-neurologist, can see and hear one another through high-definition video conferencing. Tele-neurologists can perform a complete examination and decide quickly on a course of treatment, 24 hours a day, just as if they were at the patient’s bedside.
MemorialCare is committed to improving stroke care for the community we serve by taking part the American Heart Association’s Get with the Guidelines Stroke program. We proudly support two stroke-neurology receiving centers for Long Beach and Orange County.
