We have the largest and most experienced team of neurological experts in West Michigan. Our program is nationally known and is continually attracting more doctors with a depth and background of experience that is unparalleled in the region. Led by fellowship trained physicians all of our physicians are board-certified, many with double or even triple board certifications.
We rely on an interdisciplinary approach in treating neurological diseases, centralizing all neurological services in one place. Doctors, nurses and other staff members can quickly share information, and patients don’t have to wait long periods or travel to see different medical providers.
All inpatient rooms are “acuity adaptable,” so patients aren’t transferred to other units as their conditions change. Fewer transfers improve patient safety and care by minimizing the risk of miscommunication.
