The Main Line Health Stroke Program, created in 1997, provides a comprehensive continuum of high-quality stroke care that includes community education, assessment and stroke-prevention efforts, early identification and acute-treatment strategies, rehabilitation, and secondary-stroke prevention efforts.
The Main Line Health Stroke Committee—composed of Main Line Health neurologists, neurosurgeons, physical medicine doctors, rehabilitation physicians and medical staff physicians, along with nurses, case managers, emergency department staff and administrators—works to create one of the most comprehensive stroke programs in the region.
To ensure rapid treatment of stroke, the Main Line Health hospitals offer a complete continuum of care to support timely treatment. This includes:
Three strategically located acute care hospitals (Bryn Mawr, Lankenau and Paoli), specially equipped and staffed to care for stroke patients
Access to the latest treatment protocols, including tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) and other appropriate therapies, at each acute care hospital's emergency department
Inpatient stroke rehabilitation at Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital to help patients maximize function after a stroke
Outpatient stroke rehabilitation at Bryn Mawr Rehab Hospital and other convenient locations to provide continued treatment for stroke recovery
