Meet the Stroke Providers
New Hanover Regional Medical Center’s Stroke Program is recognized for fast and expert stroke treatment. Care starts as soon as EMS arrives, assesses the patient and activates the stroke team at NHRMC. Once you arrive, the radiology team, stroke nurses and neurologist are waiting to do more thorough evaluation and testing.
Our comprehensive approach to stroke care has earned us the DNV Certification for Primary Stroke Centers and quality recognitions from the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.
We offer 24/7 access to advanced stroke treatment, demonstrating care above and beyond the national standards for care.
We treat a variety of conditions including:
- Ischemic and Hemorrhagic Strokes
- Brain Aneurysms
- Brain Arteriovenous Malformations (AVM)
- Complex Brain Tumors
- Facial pain
- Cavernous malformations
- Carotid artery disease
- Epistaxis (nose bleeds)
Excellence in Stroke Care
HEALTHGRADES: FIVE STAR TREATMENT OF STROKE
New Hanover Regional Medical Center has achieved five stars from Healthgrades in stroke care.
This achievement is part of new findings and data released by Healthgrades, an online resource for comprehensive information about physicians and hospitals, and featured in the Healthgrades 2018 Report to the Nation. Every year, Healthgrades evaluates hospital performance at nearly 4,500 hospitals nationwide for 34 of the most common inpatient procedures and conditions.
Get with the Gold Guidelines:
NHRMC's Stroke Program received the Get With The Guidelines Gold Plus Achievement Award in 2018 and was recognized on the Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite Plus, two quality recognitions presented by the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association.
Stroke Honor Roll
To earn Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite Plus recognition, hospitals must achieve time to intravenous thrombolytic therapy, or door-to-needle time, of 60 minutes or less in 75 percent of stroke patients and door-to-needle time of 45 minutes or less in 50 percent of stroke patients. The IV therapy will break up a clot, which is depriving oxygen to part of the brain. Fast action can limit the damage caused by a stroke.
