Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center in Florida now has a dedicated Neuro Intensive Care Unit (ICU) that provides advanced, multidisciplinary, patient-centered care for the most critically ill patients with neurosurgical and neurological life-threatening illnesses, including stroke, brain hemorrhage and tumors.
As a primary stroke center, Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center is part of the Advanced Neuroscience Network, a broad team of Tenet hospitals and doctors in Florida who are focused on offering a full continuum of care throughout the area.
“The Neuro ICU is designed to address the clinical needs of our neurological and neurosurgical patients to improve their outcomes,” said Dianne Goldenberg, CEO of Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center. “Our Neuro ICU is equipped with advanced minimally invasive monitoring and treatment techniques – both mechanical and pharmacological therapies – to give our patients some of the most advanced care.”
The Neuro ICU team is comprised of healthcare professionals who are trained and experienced in both the neurological and medical management of the patients. Together, the Palm Beach Gardens team provides comprehensive and continuous bedside care.
