UF Health Neuromedicine Hospital
UF Health will open a new, one-of-a-kind neuromedicine hospital in 2017. The new hospital will focus on patient centered care for some of the most complex and rare neurological diseases and diagnoses.
The new hospital will allow for the consolidation of all neurological and neurosurgical services in one building creating shorter procedure times, a variety of treatment options and shorter hospital stays and faster recovery times.
The new UF Health Neuromedicine Hospital will have 96 patient beds located in the upper floors of the new tower. Below, radiology, presurgery, laboratory and other support services will be on the first floor so that patients will be able to have most of their health care needs met in one building. The hospital will also feature multiple hybrid operating rooms with the capability of adapting to rapidly changing medical technology.
The highly trained physicians at the Preston A. Wells Jr. Center take a patient-centered approach to care. Because no two individuals respond in the same way to any treatment, the multidisciplinary team of specialists provides highly individualized diagnostics and treatment plans. The ultimate goal is to provide the optimal patient experience.
Collaborators from many areas are focused on leading the way in research breakthroughs. Weekly, experts from many different departments will gather to discuss specific cases during a tumor board meeting. During this meeting, doctors and scientists will discuss best treatment options, new techniques and surgical interventions and possible inclusion into research studies in which progressive treatments can be tried.
UF Health Shands Children’s Hospital is ranked by U.S. News and World Report among the nation’s best, and our pediatric cancer program is the highest ranked program in Florida. This recognition, combined with an overall mission to care for and support our patients and families, leads to advanced treatment with a personalized touch from our pediatric hematology/oncology team.
