Blue Sky Telehealth neurologist and Neurocritical Care physician Kourosh Kahkeshani, DO, has been named Regional Stroke Medical Director for the practice’s extensive telemedicine networks in the state of Texas.

In his new role, Dr. Kahkeshani will provide clinical and operational guidance to the stroke teams at Blue Sky’s client health systems, collaborating closely with local leadership. Additionally, he, along with Blue Sky’s stroke coordinators, will participate in key stakeholder meetings at these health systems and provide clinical expertise on Telestroke process improvement initiatives.

Dr. Kahkeshani graduated from the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine (Lewisburg, WV), did his residency training at Mount Sinai Beth Israel Hospital (New York), and completed a Neurocritical Care fellowship at the University of Texas Health Science Center in his hometown of Houston, TX.

He joined Blue Sky in 2019, becoming a member of the practice’s Neurocritical Care division at Swedish Medical Center (Englewood, CO). Today, Dr. Kahkeshani works as an inpatient Neurocritical Care physician at Swedish, Lutheran Medical Center (Wheat Ridge, CO), and The Medical Center of Aurora (Aurora, CO).

Recently, Swedish was named an “America’s 100 Best Stroke Care” facility by Healthgrades for the third year in a row. The stroke program at Swedish is managed by a 26-member Blue Sky Neurology team, of which Dr. Kahkeshani is a part.

Dr. Kahkeshani’s professional interests include high-acuity neurology, providing care in underserved areas, and teaching trainees in the intensive care unit and hospital wards.

We’re extremely proud of and thankful for all our Blue Sky Telehealth clinicians and the life-changing work they do each and every day.
