Gaylord Hospital Dedicates Unit to Care of Complex Stroke Patients
Story Number is : 090117101
Gaylord Specialty Healthcare

Gaylord Hospital, a not-for-profit specialty hospital in Wallingford, recently opened a new unit dedicated to the unique medical needs of the hospital’s most complex and medically fragile stroke patients.

According to Sonja LaBarbera, Vice President of Operations and Strategy, Gaylord Hospital has long been a recognized leader in stroke care throughout the Northeast and has the only stroke program in Connecticut to be accredited by CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities).

“We continually strive to incorporate best practices into our stroke program as it continues to grow year after year,” she said. “We’re employing an evidence-based model of care that proves that cohorting the hospital’s most complex stroke patients leads to better outcomes.”

“With individuals being discharged from acute care hospitals sooner, we’re finding that stroke patients are arriving at Gaylord with more complex medical needs than ever before,” LaBarbera continued. “Our most medically fragile stroke patients will benefit from coordinated, multidisciplinary care from nurses, therapists, hospitalists and physiatrists who are experienced and trained in providing the highest level of stroke care.”

The complex stroke unit was also recently outfitted with a state-of-the-art telemetry system. It’s an investment in technology, LaBarbera says, that “further commits Gaylord to providing the best in care.”
