Albany Med a Lifesaver for a Well-Known College President
R. Mark Sullivan, EdD, the longtime president of The College of Saint Rose and one of the Capital Region’s most respected leaders, credits Albany Med’s stroke team for enabling him to continue his work to train the next generation of academic leaders — and for saving his life.
Now director of the Sullivan Institute for Higher Education Leadership at Saint Rose, Sullivan, was rushed to Albany Med’s emergency department in 2010 with a hemorrhagic stroke, a condition where a weakened blood vessel bursts and bleeds into the brain.
“Right before our eyes, he was getting clinically worse,” said Gary Bernardini, MD, PhD, professor of neurology and director of stroke and neurocritical care.
