MOBILE STROKE UNIT COMES TO SUFFOLK COUNTY

Stony Brook Medicine and Central Islip – Hauppauge Volunteer Ambulance

Suffolk County Legislator Tom Cilmi met with representatives from Stony Brook Medicine and Central Islip – Hauppauge Volunteer Ambulance to learn about the new Stony Brook Mobile Stroke Unit.


This innovative, life-saving program features two fully equipped ambulances fitted with a CT scanner and all of the necessary tools and personnel to diagnose and begin treatment for stroke. Operating in coordination with ambulance companies like Central Islip - Hauppauge Ambulance and Exchange Ambulance of the Islips, the Mobile Stroke Unit is dispatched when a patient calls 9-1-1 with stroke symptoms. Diagnosis and treatment can begin upon arrival, saving precious time, which means better outcomes for stroke victims.


Legislator Cilmi said, “Time is crucial when treating a stroke. These mobile units will save lives and reduce the severity of complications arising from a stroke. That’s great news for the residents of Suffolk.”
