TeleStroke Medicine

Telestroke is an approach to treating vascular strokes that allows a neurologist to provide remote treatment for a stroke victim. A telestroke service, which is a sub-category of telemedicine, is often used for medical consultations in rural areas.

With this advanced technology, West Feliciana Hospital provides patients access to high quality stroke care. The program is available in the following rural care areas:
  • Our Lady of the Lake in Baton Rouge, LA
  • St. Elizabeth Hospital in Gonzales, LA
  • St. Francis in Monroe, LA
  • Our Lady of the Lake Livingston in Walker, LA
With easy access to expert care we can help reduce the cost of stroke, in terms of death, disability and dollars. Telestroke is an easy-to-use and cost effective way for immediate access to a stroke neurologist around the clock.
