Providence St. Vincent Medical Center is recognized for outstanding spine and neurosurgical care

March 11, 2013
Becker's Hospital Review has named Providence St. Vincent Medical Center as one of 100 Hospitals with Great Neurosurgery and Spine Programs. “These hospitals offer outstanding spine and neurosurgical care,” says the publication. The Becker's Hospital Review editorial team selected hospitals on the list based on nominations, clinical accolades, quality care and other spine and neurosurgical proficiencies.

Providence St. Vincent Medical Center’s listing cites that it is home to one of only 20 intraoperative MRI suites of its calibre worldwide, which allow MRI equipment to be moved to the patient multiple times during surgery without sending the patient into a traditional MRI machine. The institute offers telestroke services to 19 hospitals in Oregon and Washington and is engaged in clinical research to treat neurological and spinal conditions, including multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer's disease and ALS. No other Oregon hospitals made the list.
