The Western NC StrokeNet is led by Wake Forest University School of Medicine (WFUSOM), a pioneer in research to improve transitional care and outcomes after stroke. WFUSOM has partnered with 4 sites to develop this comprehensive network, which includes 4 of the 6 Comprehensive Stroke Centers in North Carolina in the middle of the Stroke Belt region.
Together, WFUSOM (regional coordinating center), Atrium Health Carolinas Medical Center, Atrium Health Carolinas Rehab Northeast, Novant Forsyth Medical Center, and Duke University Hospital work together to successfully implement StrokeNet trials in North Carolina, and design new stroke treatment trials. The referral and telestroke outreach of our network includes the Piedmont region and nearly all of NC west of the Piedmont, and part of southern Virginia.
The Western NC StrokeNet RCC participates in: ARCADIA, ARCADIA-CSI, ASPIRE, CAPTIVA, CREST-2, CREST-H, FASTEST, MOST, SATURN, Sleep SMART, TRANSPORT2, and VERIFY.
