What We'll Do

Our Goals for Paoli Neurointervention

Become an Advanced Certified Stroke Center

We would like the Paoli Neurointerventional Unit to become an advanced certified stroke center, which would allow us to continue providing state of the art stroke care to patients in our community.

Become the Region's Leading Neuroscience Provider

In addition to treating acute stroke, Paoli Hospital will also treat other neurological conditions such as subarachnoid and intracerebral hemorrhages, arteriovenous malformation/fistula, and aneurysm repair.

Treat More Patients

We would like to treat more than 175 patients in our first year of service at Paoli Hospital and grow to treat more than 400 patients across the MLH system by 2025.  The resources and individual care we can provide for the surrounding community will be invaluable.

Continued Advancement

World-Class Equipment at Bryn Mawr Rehab

Exoskeleton Bionic Device

Ekso Bionics develops exoskeleton devices that strap on as wearable robots to enhance strength, mobility, and endurance. These exoskeletons enable individuals with lower extremity weakness, including those who are paralyzed, to stand up and walk. This technology could potentially benefit 1,884 Bryn Mawr Rehab inpatients and outpatients suffering from stroke, spinal cord and brain injury every year. 

Gait and Balance System

Bryn Mawr Rehab presently has an overhead body weight supported device system in the first floor Main Gym. Utilized every day, it is designed to accelerate physical rehabilitation of patients with mild to severe gait or balance impairment. Our goal is to purchase a similar device for the Stroke Unit, located on the hospital third floors. For these critical and vulnerable patients, the more immediate accessibility of this state-of-the-art equipment (right outside the patient rooms) will help to optimize patient treatment and progress. Given the severity of a patient’s stroke, it may not be appropriate for them to begin treatment in the Main Gym, not only for their emotional and physical well-being, but for the other patients in the Main Gym as well.
