Eastern Maine Medical Center recently named Gillian Gordon Perue, MBBS, DM, consultant neurologist and stroke physician, as the new medical director of EMMC Stroke Care. Dr. Gordon Perue joined the hospital in 2014 after finishing her fellowship and residency at the University of Miami-Jackson Memorial Hospital. She is certified by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology and American Board of Vascular Medicine.
“I am honored to work with such an incredible team of caregivers,” says Dr. Gordon Perue. “We know that the sooner a patient receives treatment for a stroke, the better the outcome, so we constantly look for ways to improve our approach to ensure the safest, highest quality care available.”
EMMC Stroke Care is a program that underwent a successful Joint Commission certification in 2016 and was awarded the Gold Plus award for the fifth year in a row by the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association.
