Since 2017, Cape Regional Medical Center has been designated as a Primary Stroke Center by the New Jersey Department of Health and Senior Services.
A stroke is a life-threatening emergency where every moment counts. Cape Regional Medical Center is committed to providing high-quality, clinical expertise in the diagnosis, care and treatment of patients who experience a stroke. Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death and a leading cause of disability in the United States, according to the American Stroke Association.
Cape Regional's stroke team consists of board-certified neurologists, tele-neurology, emergency physicians, radiologists, and nurses who are specially trained and ready to care for the Cape May County community 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
As a Primary Stroke Center, Cape Regional Medical Center's Emergency Department Team combines their resources with the expertise of the Cape Regional stroke team to quickly diagnose and treat the complex needs of victims of stroke. We urge anyone who suspects they are suffering a stroke to call 911 without hesitation and go to the nearest Emergency Room.
