CPH CT Scanner Downtime

St. Lawrence County EMS Providers,


Beginning 06:00 hours on Wednesday May 29 thru 19:00 hours on Thursday May 30, 2024, the main CAT-Scan will be down at Canton-Potsdam Hospital (CPH) for routine maintenance. During this downtime CPH will not be able to perform CT-angiography (CTA) exams on stroke patients. 


During the downtime we ask that patients who would normally bypass another facility and transport to CPH, instead transport to the closest stroke-ready hospital. If there is a facility that could be transported to within reason, consider transport to that facility. If CPH is the closest facility, do not bypass the facility, and consider use of aeromedical services.


Please contact medical control prior to departing the scene if you are transporting to CPH.


If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me directly.


Thank you for your cooperation,

Mark Deavers

Director of EMS
