Stanford Health Care planners knew that people with neurological disorders experience the world—and their health care—with a particular perspective. Sometimes, every step is a challenge. Or, finding their way around might be difficult.
Doctors know, too, that their patients can need care from more than one neurological subspecialty. Doctors and patients talked and the result is the new Stanford Neuroscience Health Center, a place where barriers to care are at a minimum and collaboration is as easy as walking across a hallway.
The center offers every neurological service, from diagnosis to treatment to therapy, in one building. Doctors and other clinicians from 21 subspecialties work together in the center—a first for them. This video shows what happens when patients’ ideas come first.
