Wing Memorial Hospital is designated a Primary Stroke Service Center by
the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, based on the hospital's
ability to rapidly diagnose and treat stroke patients around the clock.
Using an advanced telemedicine videoconferencing system,
Wing Memorial Hospital physicians are in direct contact with the
experienced stroke neurologists at the UMass Memorial Medical Center
enabling them to make a diagnosis and initiate care for stroke victims
arriving at Wing Memorial Hospital.
Studies show that this very timely intervention greatly increases the chance to recover fully from a stroke.
If a stroke patient requires the highly specialized services of a major
academic medical center, UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester is
just minutes away via Life Flight air ambulance.
