Region’s First Mobile Stroke Unit

Introducing the region’s first mobile stroke unit, a vehicle specially designed to provide immediate care for patients suffering from a possible stroke.

When UC Health Can Help

For more than 30 years, the stroke team at UC Health has been at the forefront of complex stroke care. We were the first health system in Greater Cincinnati to receive comprehensive stroke certification from the Joint Commission, and now we are proud to be the first to introduce mobile stroke care.

Our Unique Approach To Patient Care

In Seconds Lives the Difference

The mobile stroke unit is advanced stroke care on the move bringing the strength of the UC Health stroke team directly to the patient when seconds matter most. The mobile stroke unit comes equipped with a computed tomography (CT) scanner to help diagnose a stroke as well as the ability to begin treatment before the patient arrives at the hospital.

Region’s first and only mobile stroke unit.
Only the 23rd mobile stroke unit in the U.S.
Faster evaluation and treatment by 20-30 minutes.
30+ years of experience treating the most complex strokes.

Region’s Most Experienced Team

Our mobile stroke unit is the only one of its kind in the region that includes a paramedic, an EMT, a critical care registered nurse and a CT technologist on board with a stroke team physician available through a telemedicine video link.
