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.
