Duke Medicine Telestroke Network

Every second counts – especially when it comes to stroke care. Our emergency department has partnered with the Duke TeleStroke Network to provide fast access to Duke Medicine’s nationally recognized team of neurologists and stroke care specialists via real-time telemedicine based technology.

When a patient showing signs and symptoms of a stroke enters the emergency room, neurology specialists at Duke can communicate with Sovah Health's emergency room teams, examine the patient, review imaging reports, confirm a diagnosis and provided recommendations for treatment, just as if they were at the bedside. The technology uses a five-foot life sized robot, which assists in providing a thorough examination with the most immediate and best treatment plan for the patient.

Primary Stroke Center

In addition to being deemed a Chest Pain Center, Sovah Health-Danville and Sovah Health-Martinsville are Primary Stroke Centers. Certified primary stroke centers consistently set a higher standard of care for stroke patients. This means that our team has achieved a higher level of expertise to care for stroke patients.  To our hospital team, it’s an important accomplishment. To stroke patients and their families, it’s assurance that the right care will be right here whenever they need it.

Recognize the symptoms

Two of the most common life-threatening emergencies are heart attacks and strokes. Timely treatment is crucial.
