Stroke is the leading cause of disability and the fifth leading cause of death in the United States. Multiple research studies have determined that early intervention has the potential to positively impact patient outcomes. Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital (CDH), located in Winfield, IL, in partnership with Bartlett Fire Protection District, has implemented a state-of-the-art Mobile Stroke Unit (MSU) to bring stroke care directly to the area for potential stroke patients. This Mobile Stroke Unit is the first of its kind in Illinois. For more information, visit this weblink, CDH Mobile Stroke Unit.
