Lehigh Valley Hospital partnered with Cetronia Ambulance Corps to purchase a new mobile stroke unit, which is now housed at Cetronia Ambulance Corps. The photo was taken at the Emmaus Fire and Ambulance Station where the unit was presented to the staff.
The mobile stroke unit has a CT scanner and carries TPA medication for strokes, and stroke certified staff from the hospital. The team serves the Lehigh Valley area in Eastern Pennsylvania.
