Neurocritical care is medical care for critically ill neurological and neurosurgical patients, including stroke, brain hemorrhage, trauma and tumors. These patients require close and constant watch. At many of our facilities across the Advanced Neuroscience Network, we have a specially trained teams and critical care units to provide our patients with the care needed to recover.
Our Neuro Intensive Care Units were designed specifically to address the clinical needs of our critically ill neurological and neurosurgical patients and improve their outcomes. Our Neuro ICU’s across the network are equipped with advanced invasive monitoring and treatment techniques.
