PHC Updates Bayswater Civic
Fitzgerald Alcindor, M.D., Director, Department of Emergency Medicine at Peninsula Hospital Center (PHC) recently visited with the Bayswater Civic Association. He presented an update of the many new programs offered at Peninsula Hospital Center. "I am proud to announce that we [PHC] have been designated an official stroke center by the New York State Department of Health," stated Dr. Alcindor. "This means that if a patient is showing signs of a stroke, the paramedics will call ahead to the stroke team at the Hospital Center so that they can be prepared to immediately evaluate the patient, which includes a CT Scan of the brain." Dr. Alcindor presented these and other programs to the members of the Bayswater Civic Association.
