AR SAVES presents an innovative solution to a complex, statewide problem. This initiative leans upon the expertise of Arkansas’ vascular neurologists, innovative telemedicine systems, and ground-breaking medications to treat Arkansas’ stroke patients.
This program links emergency room doctors at Piggott Community Hospital to specially trained vascular neurologists via live, two-way video, available 24-hours a day. Led by the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) Center for Distance Health, the program helps ensure timely treatment of stroke patients. Our hospital is equipped with telemedicine technology, training for personnel, support and ongoing education on stroke intervention.
