Mobile unit will treat strokes on the road

From the Daily Herald:

Mobile stroke units are a new concept in the U.S. There are only about six in service nationwide — a number that’s sure to increase in the coming years.

This month, Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital will be the first in Illinois to launch one, serving patients in several DuPage County municipalities, including Winfield, West Chicago, Wheaton, Carol Stream, Glen Ellyn and Roselle. Rush Oak Park Hospital plans to put one in service, too.
