North shore doctor helps patient at Stroke Center
North Shore Medical Center is a designated Stroke Center, which means our emergency department and inpatient units are able to rapidly diagnosis and treat stroke patients, and administer brain imaging scans as needed.  NSMC physicians in collaboration with Massachusetts General Hospital neurologists conduct patient evaluations and administer clot-busting medications to those who need it. We have been recognized by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association with the Get With The Guidelines (GWTG) Gold Plus Award.


NSMC has been awarded the American Heart Association / American Stroke Association Gold Plus Award, as well as a Target: Stroke Honor Roll for Salem. Learn more
