Partners TeleStroke Center
TeleStroke Center


From David Delano of Northern Berkshire Health Systems

The Partners TeleStroke program enabled our hospital to apply for and win DPH approval as a designated stroke center within the State of Massachusetts. The TeleStroke program is not a pre-requisite for DPH approval, however the immediate, around the clock access to highly qualified neurological expertise offered by the TeleStroke program provided our local care providers with an increased level of confidence to aggressively pursue this designation. Time is critical in an acute stroke situation and having real-time, 24x7 access to the Partners neurological team ensured us that we would be able to effectively diagnose and treat these patients in a manner consistent with clinical best practices available anywhere in the world. Thank you MGH TeleStroke Program.
