Allina Health TeleStroke program helps save Glencoe ER doctor’s life

[KSTP TV & KMSP Fox 9, February 13, 2023] Dr. Cody Wendlandt has treated numerous stroke patients as an emergency room doctor, but during one of his shifts last November, he became the patient himself.

“When I noticed issues with my left side and had trouble speaking, that’s when I realized I needed help,” Wendlandt said.

Luckily for Wendlandt, Glencoe Regional Health has a valuable resource. The Allina Health TeleStroke program puts small, rural hospitals in touch with a specialist immediately during emergencies.
