Providence Telestroke Network hospitals and volumes
For many patients in rural communities, getting access to trained stroke neurologists has been very challenging or impossible. To meet this need, the Providence Stroke Program began providing stroke consultation via telemedicine to small and/or rural hospitals in 2010. We now provide expert care to 21 hospitals within our Telestroke Network.
