The Neuro ICU at Parkland Health & Hospital System’s new hospital is now accepting patients.

The 16th floor neurological intensive care unit began seeing patients last month, about three months to the day after the hospital opened its doors. All of Parkland’s neurosciences are now housed there. Twelve of the 66 total rooms on the floor are dedicated for the Neuro ICU with room for overflow, if necessary. The unit also has a dedicated CT scanner.

It’s staffed with six attending physicians from UT Southwestern’s Division of Neurocritical Care. The clinic offers care for nerve and neuromuscular disorders, multiple sclerosis, epilepsy, stroke, and dementia.
