ResearchDifferentiates Carolinas HealthCare
Throughout 2010 Carolinas HealthCare System demonstrated its extraordinary commitment to public service through an impressive series of medical advancements and research initiatives.
In February, for example, CHS put the finishing touches on a comprehensive network that provides rapid, advanced treatment to patients suffering an acute stroke. The initiative, called Carolinas Stroke Network, raises the current standards for diagnosis and treatment among participating hospitals. Hospitals have 24/7 access to stroke experts who help determine the best treatment plan for each patient and coordinate rapid transfer to alternate hospitals, as needed, to provide the most appropriate level of care.
