Stroke Center

Timely, effective treatment can make a significant difference in quality of life after a stroke. At our Stroke Center, our highly skilled physicians take pride in delivering safe, patient-centered, and efficient care. We work closely with Yale New Haven Hospital’s emergency medical service and emergency department teams to rapidly diagnose and treat acute stroke and other cerebrovascular disorders 24 hours a day.

For patients at other Connecticut hospitals who present with acute stroke symptoms, our Stroke Telemedicine Program allows local providers to consult with our neurologists via video and image sharing technology. Yale New Haven Hospital is the only hospital in Connecticut to offer stroke telemedicine services.

Our center is a Joint Commission Primary Stroke Center, a national recognition of our expertise in providing the highest level of care to stroke patients. From prevention to treatment to recovery, we have the most experienced doctors and the latest diagnostic tools, techniques and treatments.

Our Y Access Line allows for the quick and easy transfer of patients to Yale New Haven Hospital. We also offer SkyHealth, an emergency patient transport helicopter, staffed by highly skilled medical professionals, including a critical-care flight nurse and a trained paramedic. Life-saving interventions can now be delivered en route, affording you the best possible clinical outcomes.
