Mobile stroke treatment unit launches in New York

Healio announced the launch of the Mobile Stroke Treatment Unit, and explained how the providers in the MSTU can deliver care onsite. Dr. Matthew Fink described why this capability is critical: ““The most effective method in savings a stroke victim’s life is to diagnose and treat immediately after a stroke occurs…The MSTU rapidly brings a neurologist and advanced technologies of an emergency room directly to the patient, offering stare-of-the-art care that is only moments away.” 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.
