Patients suffering from Stroke symptoms don’t have to travel the distance for premiere stroke care. Thanks to the collaboration with Upstate University Hospital and its Upstate Stroke Center (the first designated Stroke Center in Central New York) and Carthage Area Hospital (CAH), Stroke patients can be treated at their local community hospital in Carthage through the use of telemedicine. Telemedicine gives the hospital the ability to connect to Upstate Neurologists within minutes. Carthage Area Hospital has plans to apply for designation to be a Primary Stroke Center.
