NewYork-Presbyterian, FDNY partner for mobile stroke treatment unit

Becker's Hospital Review covered the launch of the Mobile Stroke Treatment Unit (MSTU), and detailed who staffs this emergency vehicle, as well as the technology they will utilize to diagnose and treat patients onsite, before they are even transported to the hospital. One of the leaders of the partnership, Dr. Matthew Fink, stated, "This is just the beginning - there will be a number of clinical treatments that we will be developing in the future for the treatment of stroke in the field." Dr. Matthew Fink is the neurologist-in-chief and chief of the Division of Stroke and Critical Care Neurology at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center and the Louis and Gertrude Feil Professor and chairman of the Department of Neurology at Weill Cornell Medicine.
