Overlook Medical Center
Every moment is a moment that matters. From emergency services to rehabilitation, Atlantic Health System provides the most comprehensive stroke care in the region.
A stroke, sometimes referred to as a “brain attack,” is a condition where blood flow is blocked to a part of the brain, resulting in cell death due to lack of oxygen. If enough brain cells are destroyed, the patient may experience long-term side effects, such as loss of memory and muscle control.
At the stroke centers of Atlantic Health System Neuroscience, we’re fully-equipped with high-tech interventions – including telestroke, clot-busting medications and Rapid® automated brain imaging – which allow us to treat strokes with the speed and efficiency needed to improve the chances a full recovery.
