On average, someone suffers a stroke every 40 seconds; someone dies from a stroke every 4 minutes; and 795,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year. Looking at these statistics, it is obvious why quick diagnosis and treatment of stroke is so important.
You can trust the The Memorial Hospital of Salem County Stroke Center to diagnose and treat you or a loved one who may be suffering from, or has suffered from, a stroke. We have been designated by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services as a Primary Stroke Center, which means that we have in place a specially trained acute stroke team available around the clock, and they respond to a patient within minutes of their arrival to the hospital.
We are a part of the Jefferson Neuroscience Network (JNN). This partnership offers patients access to the resources of JNN's comprehensive stroke center, including community education programs, clinical trials and advanced protocols for the detection and treatment of stroke and other neuroscience disorders. Through this collaboration, we are also able to offer a broad range of diagnostic capabilities that rival many university-affiliated hospitals including neuro-imaging (CT and MRI), lab services and special pharmacy needs that are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
If you suspect a loved one is having a stroke, it is important to take immediate action. In the event of an emergency, call 9-1-1 immediately.
