Mobile Stroke Unit Arriving in ER Next Week.

There are only 13 of these units in the country and this is the only one in Upstate NY.

In partnership with the University of Rochester Medical Center, a new service will soon arrive, the Mobile Stroke Unit.  This specialty ambulance brings all of the hospital care to the patient when a 911 call for stroke comes in.  There is a link at the end of this note explaining the unit. 

Since East Rochester uses AMR for 911 service, it will be the only municipality in the area besides the City of Rochester to receive services from this unit through the 911 system until we expand our coverage sometime in 2019.  This means that ER residents will receive something pretty special.  

There are only 13 of these units in the country and this is the only one in Upstate NY.  The rig is staffed by our EMT and Paramedic, along with a Critical Care Nurse and CT technologist; we will be performing CAT scans on the ambulance and treating stroke patients with "clot-busting" drugs in the field, with UR doctors guiding us with telemedicine units.  The doctor will be able to see and talk to the patient in the back of the ambulance. 

The MSU will be dispatched whenever we receive a call to 911 for a stroke.  This will be in addition to the regular paramedic ambulance that responds.  If the patient is not having a stroke, then the regular ambulance will continue care.  If the patient is having a stroke, then the MSU team will transport the patient to the hospital of his/her choice; it is not exclusively transporting to Strong.  There are currently no additional charges for the MSU, it is currently financed through donor funding.  The rig will be in service next week.

The unit will also be available for community education.

TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE 2024

April 8th, 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm

The Town/Village of East Rochester will be hosting a gathering event for the community to view the Solar Eclipse. Everyone is welcome to participate with us on the upper soccer fields of the East Rochester School District Campus.

The Rochester/Monroe County area is anticipating between 300 to 500 thousand people coming into our region.  The thruway roads will be closed and all of the hotels are booked!  So, with all that being said, plan to attend the event of the year that East Rochester will be hosting.

We have several vendors who will be selling food to the community including: Kona Ice, GG’s Pizza and St. Nicholas Society(Hot Dogs, Hamburgers, Italian Sausage and beverages).

If your looking for glasses a limited supply(2 per family) will be available in the Library on a first come first served basis for East Rochester residents starting March 25th. Additional glasses may be available at the event.
