The Barrow Emergency Stroke Treatment Unit is now in operation, bringing advanced stroke treatment to the people of Phoenix—whenever and wherever it is needed. Serving as a mobile emergency room, the vehicle is equipped with the most advanced diagnostic tools and includes live telemedicine capabilities to connect with a Barrow stroke physician.
“We’ve designed the mobile unit in a way that enables the medical team to evaluate, diagnose, and start treatment on the patient before the patient arrives at the hospital,” says Dr. Waters.
