Three critical ways we treat stroke
  1. We are the only hospital in the area that uses the MERCI Retrieval System, an instrument used to remove blood clots from patients experiencing a stroke.
  2. We are also the only hospital to use the intra-arterial (IA) procedure: a fast way to deliver clot-busting medicine to the brain.
  3. We can also us a medication called Tissue Plasminogen Activator, or tPA, to break up clots.
