Changing the Outcome of Our Neighborhood Stroke Patient

Fire departments in Columbus, OH, partnered on the revolutionary and innovative Mobile Stroke Treatment Unit (MSTU), which was launched on May 29, 2019. Among mobile stroke programs throughout the country, the Columbus unit is among busiest units, responding to more than 2,000 calls of CVA in the first year and transporting nearly 450 patients. Treating these patients on an average 26 minutes faster than the emergency department, the MSTU program provides a view of what the future view of how prehospital and hospital providers could provide the powerful treatments and therapies at a local and community level.
