Liberty Regional Medical Center has partnered with Memorial University Medical Center to provide life-saving stroke assistance in Liberty County and the surrounding areas. Utilizing real-time audio and video conferencing, neurologists at MUMC can assess a patient and communicate treatment plans directly with our ER physicians. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. "Access to telemedicine services is especially important in stroke because time lost is brain lost," said Joel Greenberg, M.D., co-medical director of Memorial Stroke and one of the developers of the Telestroke Platform. "Patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS) require immediate attention and stroke expertise; services rarely offered in smaller community hospitals. Through the use of audio and video, Telestroke essentially adds a neurologist to the rapid response teams of underserved regions, providing better stroke care for the local community."
