In 2006, Lawrence passed a rigorous set of standards to qualify as a New York State Department of Health designated Stroke Center. As a New York State sanctioned Stroke Center, Lawrence now has a highly skilled and dedicated stroke team that's on standby 24 hours a day, seven days a week, ready to immediately treat any stroke patient who comes through our doors.
A rapid response is key in treating stroke patients. In order to qualify as a Stroke Center, Lawrence Hospital Center developed new protocols and sharpened its stroke response times. Lawrence collaborated with its healthcare partner, New York Presbyterian Healthcare System Columbia University to assist in this effort.
