Stroke Program

Southern NH Medical Center and Mass General Work Together to Save Lives

Immediate medical attention can mean the difference between life and death, or life without disability. The faster a person receives medical care, the better his or her chances for recovery.

Our TeleStroke Program with MassGeneral helps improve the odds of surviving a stroke. Together we offer advanced treatment 24-hours a day, seven-days-a-week, from some of the best stroke experts in the country.

Using TeleStroke technology, Southern New Hampshire Medical Center’s Emergency Department physicians can transmit CT images and other test results directly to specialists at MassGeneral.

Patients may also be examined via video conferencing by a MassGeneral acute stroke neurologist.

With this partnership stroke patients get a second expert opinion and if needed, can start the most effective treatment plan as quickly as possible.

  • Stroke patients are seen by a MassGeneral stroke specialist within minutes of arrival
  • Immediate attention from one of the country’s leading stroke care providers
  • Close to home treatment
