October 10, 2012 at 1:31 PM

Mount St. Mary’s Hospital has earned the designation as a Stroke Center from the New York State Department of Heatlh. The designation is part of a statewide effort to improve the overall quality of care and outcomes for stroke patients. Mount St. Mary’s is partnering with Catholic Health of Buffalo and its facilities at Kenmore Mercy Hospital and Sisters of Charity Hospital in stroke care and treatment.

“The designation means that Mount St. Mary’s has met all of the criteria for stroke center status by demonstrating our abilities to rapidly diagnose and treat strokes,” said Mount St. Mary’s President and CEO Judith A. Maness. “This official designation is the culmination of a lengthy training and application process that involved every part of our hospital community. We are extremely proud to have earned this designation.”

Dr. Gregory D. Sambuchi, Head of the Division of Neurology at Mount St. Mary's Hospital, said physicians and staff have been trained on the new equipment used in the process. Dr. Sambuchi leads the multi-disciplinary stroke team at Mount St. Mary’s includes doctors, nurses, therapists, care management, dietary and social workers. Document Improvement Coordinator Rosanne Schiavi, RN, is the nurse team leader.

At the Mount St. Mary’s Designated Stroke Center, care is coordinated from the first point of contact with the patient, whether through the EmStar Emergency Department, outpatient service areas, or our inpatient units.
