Stony Brook offers Long Island's Only Mobile Stroke Unit Program

In 2019, David Fiorella, MD, PhD, led efforts to bring to Stony Brook Medicine, what is still Long Island's only program of its kind. Serving over 40 different communities, and working in collaboration with over 40 emergency medical service (EMS) agencies throughout Suffolk County, the mobile stroke unit team provides specialized, life-saving care to people within the critical moments of stroke, before they even get to the hospital. This markedly accelerates the time required to make  an accurate stroke diagnosis, allows for time-sensitive stroke therapies to be administered early, and allows for the transport of stroke patients directly to the most appropriate hospital for the level of care they require, the first time.
