Thanks to a new partnership with OhioHealth’s award- winning Stroke Network, OhioHealth MedCentral can use the technology to connect patients and caregivers with OhioHealth neurologists specializing in stroke care.

Time is critical for stroke patients and a few hours can be the difference between a full recovery and permanent neurological damage. The OhioHealth Stroke Network will enable MedCentral to diagnose strokes quickly and accurately, helping the patient get on the road to recovery.

“Since March, fifty percent of our patients registered in the stroke network have been treated at MedCentral, in the community where they live, rather than being transferred to OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital for further treatment,” said Jean Halpin, president and CEO of OhioHealth MedCentral.

The OhioHealth Stroke Network is a two-way video and audio system connecting OhioHealth neurologists at Riverside Methodist , a certified Comprehensive Stroke Center, and OhioHealth Grant Medical Center, a certified Primary Stroke Center, to MedCentral.

Through the technology, OhioHealth neurologists are able to guide MedCentral clinical staff through the patient exam, view CT scans, speak with family members and even examine the patient’s pupils as part of the stroke assessment.

Once a patient is examined, the stroke network physicians work with physicians at MedCentral to develop a treatment plan. In some cases, the patient may be transported to Riverside Methodist or Grant Medical Center for specialized interventional procedures to help stroke patients avoid long-term neurological damage.

“OhioHealth’s Stroke Network is just one example of how being a member of the OhioHealth network is already benefiting our community,” said Halpin. “Through this groundbreaking service we can facilitate early detection and prompt treatment for patients potentially suffering from a stroke.”

By partnering with OhioHealth’s Stroke Network, MedCentral is able to offer stroke patients more efficient treatments and increase the chances of an improved outcome.
