CentraState is an Advanced Primary Stroke Center with licensed certification from The Joint Commission and the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services. We are among an elite group of hospitals in New Jersey and across the country with a specially trained “Stroke Alert” response team.
The stroke response team includes an emergency physician, a neurologist, an emergency registered nurse, and a stroke coordinator, all of whom have advanced training in caring for stroke patients. The team is available around the clock to assess patients immediately upon their arrival at the Emergency Department and initiate appropriate stroke treatment, which may include the administration of a “clot-busting” medication. When a patient is experiencing stroke symptoms, every second counts in preventing or limiting damage to brain tissue.
CentraState is also available to assist with stroke rehabilitation and recovery following stroke treatment.
