Bringing the Emergency Department to the Patient

Mills-Peninsula's Mobile Stroke Unit will be one of the first hospitals in the West Coast joining Houston, Denver, New York, Chicago, Cleveland and Los Angeles to pilot this technology. Preliminary studies have indicated that a mobile stroke unit can reduce the time from ambulance dispatch to treatment to as little as 11 minutes. Data gathered through the Mills-Peninsula pilot will contribute to national efforts aimed at demonstrating the Mobile Stroke Unit’s ability to:

  • Reduce stroke-related disability and mortality
  • Reduce the need for post-stroke rehabilitation and hospitalization
