Innovative Technology

An innovative technology called Viz.ai from Medtronic enables enhanced CT angiography of the brain at Memorial’s Heart Center/ER1 Emergency Department to be delivered instantaneously to the UBNS stroke specialist for immediate diagnosis and treatment assessment.

In the past, many patients presenting with advanced stroke symptoms at Memorial’s emergency department were transferred to Gates Vascular Institute for diagnosis.

Most of those transfers will now be eliminated as patients will receive the same stroke care protocol in Memorial’s Cardiac Stroke Unit under the direction of a UB Neurodurgery physician. UBNS will also provide on-site care to stroke patients who are admitted to Memorial’s Cardiac/Stroke Care Center.

Pioneer’s in Stroke Care

A pioneer in stroke care, Memorial was the first medical center in Niagara (2006) activated to participate in the New York State Department of Health’s REACH Telemedicine Stroke Care Program. In 2010, Memorial earned recognition as Niagara County’s first designated stroke center, part of a statewide effort to improve quality health care to stroke patients through enhanced policies, protocols, rapid evaluation and treatment.

Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center is a seven-time recipient of the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke Gold-Plus Quality Achievement. That award recognizes our hospital’s commitment to ensuring stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines based on the latest scientific evidence.
