Primary Stroke Center


HealthAlliance is a state-designated Primary Stroke Center. This means the program complies with the state’s high standards for providing advanced stroke care. It also means the center’s highly trained staff consistently meets or exceeds the most up-to-date clinical practice guidelines, performance measurements and continuous improvement programs for stroke patient care.

HealthAlliance also continually earns the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association’s Get with the Guidelines–Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award and the association’s Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite recognition. The Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award recognizes HealthAlliance for its commitment to, and success in, ensuring stroke patients receive excellent care based on the latest evidence-based scientific guidelines. To qualify for the Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite recognition, HealthAlliance met the association’s quality measures developed to reduce the time between a stroke patient’s hospital arrival and treatment with recombinant tissue plasminogen activator, or r-tPA, which the association considers “the gold standard” for treating ischemic strokes, caused by blood clots.

In addition, HealthAlliance is a sister hospital of Westchester Medical Center, the only state-certified Comprehensive Stroke Center in the Hudson Valley. HealthAlliance stroke patients can be easily transported to the medical center if they need the highest level of care.


The TeleStroke Program at HealthAlliance Hospital and Margaretville Hospital connects patients at these facilities with stroke specialists at Westchester Medical Center. WMCHealth’s secure, high-definition eHealth Program offers patients personalized care from advanced WMCHealth specialists without having to travel to visit them. The specialists complement – and do not replace – the dedicated healthcare teams at the patient’s location. Learn more.

What Is a Stroke?


A stroke happens when blood stops flowing to any part of your brain, damaging brain cells. The effects of a stroke depend on the part of the brain that was damaged and the amount of damage done.

Autism-Friendly Program


Patients with autism react and communicate differently, requiring a special approach to creating a safe and supportive environment – especially in emergency situations. Recognizing the opportunity to develop a comprehensive approach for this need, HealthAlliance Emergency Department leadership initiated a special training program for medical providers, nursing staff and key hospital personnel, such as security.

Besides training, the program incorporates sensory boxes which allow an patient with Autism Spectrum Disorder to select an object, such as a squeeze ball or pinwheel, to aid in relaxation and in dealing with stress. The Emergency Department also acquired two iPads that feature autism-specific apps that help staff communicate with patients with autism and verbally impaired patients. The devices help medical providers learn the reason why the patient has arrived for care; the patient’s pain and discomfort level; and his or her communication preferences.

Imaging and Diagnostics in Emergency Medicine

Imaging at our Emergency Department includes wide array of advanced diagnostic and treatment technologies. The Emergency Department at HealthAlliance Hospital: Broadway Campus features CT technology and real-time digital radiography enabling physicians to quickly view and interpret CT scans, MRI results, sonograms and reports. We also utilize a digital documentation system that tracks physician documentation and interfaces with other hospital departments, allowing for quick retrieval of up-to-date records and treatment history – a critical need when time is of the essence.
