Stroke Network

Real-Time Communication 24/7 

Every second counts if you or someone in your family is having a stroke. That’s why we joined the OhioHealth Stroke Network — to provide access to stroke specialists 24/7 without always transferring patients to other hospitals.

Specialists in Columbus can see, hear and talk to patients and their families using video conferencing at Genesis Hospital. The telemedicine technology is so precise it can zoom in to see if a patient’s pupils are dilated.

The real-time communication with a two-way monitor enables Genesis caregivers and the stroke network personnel to determine if a patient needs to be transported to Grant or Riverside hospitals. In some cases, treatment can begin before the patient is transported, saving valuable time to help avoid long-term brain damage.
