The Wake Forest Baptist Telestroke Network partners with community hospitals to ensure they have 24-hour access to Wake Forest Baptist’s acute-stroke experts via two-way live video and audio consultation and image-sharing technology. The central purpose is to reduce death and disability caused by strokes.

Fully operational members include Vidant Beaufort Hospital in Washington, Vidant Duplin Hospital in Kenansville, and Vidant Edgecombe in Tarboro. Later this year, three more Vidant system hospitals will be integrated into the network.
