Centura Health announced the expansion of its Centura Health
Stroke Network through the addition of telestroke, a
state-of-the-art on-demand option to stroke care that enhances
services in rural communities by reducing death and disability
caused by stroke. Through secure high-speed network
videoconferencing and image-sharing technology, Centura Health will
connect teams at remote facilities across Colorado with Centura
Health specialists - in real time - to rapidly assess and treat
patients exhibiting signs of stroke, narrowing the window of time
necessary to minimize permanent injury to the brain.
Mercy Regional Medical Center in Durango becomes the first
hospital in the statewide network to connect with stroke teams at
Littleton Adventist Hospital in Metro Denver, an acute certified
stroke center with comprehensive capability. Castle Rock Adventist
Health Campus in Castle Rock will launch telestroke in the spring
with additional statewide rural and non-rural expansion planned
over the next twelve months.
