Stroke Center

We have been awarded the American Heart Association / American Stroke Association Gold Plus Award, as well as a Target: Stroke Honor Roll for Salem.  

We are 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. In collaboration with Massachusetts General Hospital neurologists, our physicians conduct patient evaluations and administer clot-busting medications to those who need it.
