Stroke Center

Charles Kososky, M.D.
Clinical Director

"Time is Brain"

The Neuroscience Institute Stroke Program combines highly trained staff, advanced technology and a concentration in patient education to bring quality and comprehensive stroke care to Mercer County.

The Stroke Team consists of neurologists, emergency room staff, nurses, primary care physicians as well as radiologists to provide rapid care to those affected by stroke. At least one neurologist and nurse are on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to respond quickly to stroke patients who are brought to the medical center.

The Stroke Team is active in distributing information regarding signs, treatment and prevention of strokes to hospital employees, patients, and the surrounding community. Education related to stroke recognition and timely response is key to improved clinical outcomes.

Early warning signs include:

  • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body
  • Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding
  • Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
  • Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination
  • Sudden, severe headache with no known cause
