NEUROCRITICAL CARE UNIT

The Neuroscience Unit (NSU) is a 19-bed unit designed for the care of neurology and neurosurgical patients who require specialized intensive nursing and medical care. The NSU is involved with the care of complex patients with neurologic and neurosurgical disorders; acute treatment of stroke patients (i.e. Brain Attack), and evaluation of novel treatments for acute stroke. The unit is directed by Michael DeGeorgia, MD. Additional neurointensivist staff include Drs. Wei Xiong, and Ciro Ramos Estebanez, Alan Hoffer. The ICU is physically adjacent to Lerner Tower 4, the home of the neurology inpatient service. Expansion of the NSU is underway and will be completed in 2016 with an increase in the number of beds and multimodality monitoring.

The Neurocritical Care Center offers fellowship training and is actively involved in a variety of research activities. More information is available here on the Neurocritical Site of University Hospitals.
