PHC Auxiliary Welcomes Stroke Center Director
The Peninsula Hospital Center Auxiliary welcomed David G. Steiner, M.D., Chief of Neurology and Director of the Stroke Center at Peninsula Hospital Center (PHC).
Dr. Steiner discussed PHC’s recent designation as a Stroke Center. "Our recent designation assures a stroke victim that a trained stroke team will be available and on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at PHC," stated Dr. Steiner. "Upon arriving at the hospital center, patients receive immediate and aggressive evaluation to see if they can be treated with clot dissolving thombolytic therapy using a CT Scan of the brain."
Peninsula Hospital Center is home to one of the region’s finest traumatic brain injury units. This unit resides within the hospital and offers a combined multidisciplinary approach to rehabilitation that makes Peninsula Hospital Center very unique. It was the existence of this unit that encouraged and prompted the hospital’s further pursuit of excellence within the area of neuroscience.
The next PHC Auxiliary meeting will be held on Tuesday, January 6 at Noon in the Meditation Room and will feature a presentation on by Ms. Winnie Spence on Homecare nursing. All interested parties are welcome to attend each luncheon and encouraged to join the Auxiliary. Further information on the Auxiliary is available from the Peninsula Hospital Center’s Public Affairs office, 718 734-2506.
