Providence’s new Neurocritical Care Unit
September 26, 2013
Providence now offers a new, 12-bed neurocritical care unit at Providence St. Vincent Medical Center in Portland.
The NCCU is an intensive care unit designed for patients with life-threatening diseases of the central and peripheral nervous system.
Our specialists provide evidence-based, comprehensive care for:
- Tumors of the brain and spinal cord
- Complicated strokes requiring interventions
- Intracerebral hemorrhage
- Cerebral AVMs
- Other intracranial hemorrhages
The evidence is clear: Neurocritical care is best provided in an ICU environment where specialized nurses and staff recognize subtle changes early.
To reach a specialist, call 503-216-1055.
