Saint Luke’s Hospital officially opens its new neuroscience institute tomorrow, promising “a dedicated neuroscience hospital created to lead the way in research, medical advancements, patient outcomes, comfort and quality of care.”

The new Saint Luke’s Neuroscience Institute replaces the former Saint Luke’s Brain and Stroke Institute. According to a press release, “The design and formulation of the new facility was based upon the concept of integrated care delivery and allows the neuroscience program to consolidate its diagnostic, surgical, interventional, intensive care and other services into one 88,000 square foot tower.”

“By treating and caring for our patients with neurological conditions in one dedicated space we have the opportunity to not only provide the best, most comprehensive care in the most timely manner, but those patients will also have the benefit of the clinical expertise and collaboration of all the specialists in the building,” said Marilyn Rymer, M.D., Saint Luke’s Neuroscience Institute medical director.  “When you are able to bring together leaders and experts in this highly specialized field and allow them to easily collaborate and confer with one another on particular cases or treatment options, the end result is the very best, highest level of care for the patient.”

The $32 million project includes a ongoing $20 million fundraising campaign.

The institute focuses on diagnosis and treatment of neurological and spinal disease including stroke, epilepsy, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s Disease, brain tumors, aneurysms, headaches, multiple sclerosis and sleep disorders.
