Facility is Arizona's newest comprehensive, multidisciplinary neurological care center
The HonorHealth Neuroscience Institute will offer neurosurgical consultations for the diagnosis and treatment of brain and spine related disorders. Other conditions treated at this facility will include multiple sclerosis (MS), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), back and spine intervention and management, headaches and movement disorders. Nurse navigators will be available within the Institute to provide guidance and support to patients based on their specific diagnosis, starting with an ALS and MS navigator.
The 120,000 square-foot facility will include a 26-chair infusion center, a bio skills lab, Spine Group Arizona, neurosurgeon offices, and allow for the expansion of HonorHealth Neurology to 12 providers. The Institute will also house a physical therapy center featuring spine and neuro gyms and a wellness center.
"One of the most intriguing aspects of this new facility is that it aligns clinical trials in the fields of neuro and spine research, giving patients access to these potential life-changing therapies in one location," Post said.
All told, the five-story Neurosciences Institute will bring together experts in the fields of neurology, neurosurgery, physical medicine and rehabilitation, speech, occupational and physical therapy, infusion therapy, phlebotomy, imaging and research to create an integrated approach to treatment.
