Stroke Care

When a patient comes to the hospital with stroke symptoms, it’s crucial to make a proper diagnosis quickly in order to begin treatment to minimize the effects of a stroke. Salem Medical Center’s stroke care team delivers potentially life-saving care for ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes, and can perform treatment options.

The hospital has 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.
