Stroke Care at Noyes Health
If you think you are having a stroke, stop reading and call 9-1-1.
Thankfully, gone are the days when patients in rural communities must drive to the nearest big city to consult a medical specialist or get advanced medical advice critical to their health. Noyes Health, now a Primary Stroke Center, is excited to continue to increase efficiency, optimize quality, and improve patient care.
Our stroke team is comprised of physicians, nurses, pharmacy technicians, lab and radiology technologists, clerical staff, and information technology staff. Noyes Health nursing staff and physicians have American Heart NIH Stroke Certification.
Thanks to vital equipment, qualified staff, and access to specialized care, patients receive life-saving stroke treatment in their own community, in their local hospital.
The goal of our stroke program is to not only evaluate and treat patients with stroke symptoms, but also to educate and inform the community on the risk factors, symptoms and possible outcomes of stroke. Noyes Health recognizes that it is our job to inform and educate the community on stroke symptoms, awareness, and what to do when you think you're having a stroke.
