Rome, NY (WIBX) – A new program that links doctors in Syracuse to the Rome Memorial Hospital for stroke evaluation has received $22,000 in grant funding.

The money was awarded by the Rome Community Foundation, through the Stevens-Kingsley Fund, for the hospitals Stroke Telemedicine Program.

The new program connects patients in Rome’s emergency department to neurologists at Upstate University Hospital through high-speed internet connection and real-time video. The technology allows doctors in Syracuse to evaluate patients in Rome to help save brain function and reduce disability after a stroke.

“This is a program that will improve our community’s access to specialty services and has great potential to save lives,” Rome Memorial Hospital President and CEO Basil Ariglio said.

The program is expected to be launched later this year.

“We are waiting the credentialing of neurologists from Upstate University Hospital who will provide the telemedicine neurological evaluation. As soon is credentialing is complete, we will be ready to roll out the program in Rome Memorial Hospital’s Emergency Department,” Rome Memorial Hospital’s Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Raymond Carnevale said.
