ASHEVILLE, N.C. (June 13, 2014) --  Mission Hospital’s trauma center has once again received Level II certification, further confirming its commitment to providing the highest quality of care to our community, as evidenced by the recent site visit of the Office of Emergency Medical Services.  Mission’s trauma center is the region’s only trauma center with this level of designation, serving more than 3,400 patients per year .  

Mission Health's TeleStroke program recently conducted its 100th TeleStroke consultation. Alex Schneider, MD, a neurologist located in Asheville, NC, used “IC4U” – a TeleStroke robot located in Angel Medical Center in Franklin, NC – to successfully treat a stroke patient 70 miles away in Franklin during the crucial first moments of a stroke.
