Why Choose Us for Your Neurological Care?

We’re known for providing our patients with the highest-quality care and treatment. We do this close to home, and with the compassion that patients with life-changing conditions deserve. But accessible, top-rated care is just one of the reasons we handle the most complex neurological cases in the region. Here are six more:

Our trauma care team is available 24/7 to deliver fast and thorough treatment for people experiencing a traumatic brain or spine injury or a stroke. As the region’s only Level II trauma surgery program, we also treat patients transferred to us from across the region. Our robust Telestroke program provides virtual, 24/7 care for surrounding community hospitals needing stroke specialists for their patients. We also offer the only specialty program for child neurology and neurosurgery in the Inland Northwest and are one of the largest cerebrovascular programs in the Pacific Northwest.

Our experts use the most advanced technology and treatments for precision care. One example is RAPID, an imaging software that helps neurologists determine which stroke patients are candidates for clot removal surgery. We also use robotic systems to improve the accuracy and safety of surgery and to create a less invasive experience and quicker recovery for the patient.

We take a team-based, personalized approach to care. Your doctors develop long-term relationships with you throughout – and beyond – your treatment. Depending on your condition, a range of neuroscience experts could be on your care team, from neurologists and neurosurgeons to neuroradiologists, neuropsychologists and physiatrists. Our specialists work together to create a personalized treatment plan that fits your needs and leads to the best outcomes. They also meet regularly to review complex cases, which means you’re getting the best treatment without having to visit another doctor or specialist outside the region.

Our 50+ board-certified neurological specialty and subspecialty doctors make up the largest, most comprehensive neurology group in the Inland Northwest. We have deep expertise in every neurological condition, and we’re well known for handling the most complex cases in the region. That’s why community hospitals and smaller practices routinely refer their patients to us.

If your condition is life-changing and requires long-term care, we’re here for you with compassionate, patient-centered care. We offer patient support groups for strokes and brain and spinal cord injuries to provide a supportive environment for sharing experiences and learning from others.

If you need rehabilitation, you may be referred to Providence St. Luke’s Rehabilitation Medical Center, the largest freestanding medical rehabilitation hospital in the Inland Northwest. At St. Luke’s, we integrate treatment, technology and care to help patients achieve their goals following stroke, spinal cord injuries, orthopedic issues and brain injuries. We also offer the region’s only residency program to train future doctors in rehabilitative medicine.

At Providence, we are committed to providing access to the best care to everyone in our diverse community. We respect and support the racial, ethnic, religious, gender, sexual and spiritual identities of each of our patients. We offer translation services for our non-English-speaking patients and community stroke education awareness through fairs and events. In keeping with our Mission, Providence offers financial assistance programs that provide free and low-cost care to those who are eligible.

Every patient at Providence benefits from our deep expertise across numerous neurology and neurosurgery subspecialties. We are also part of a collaborative network that includes award-winning physicians, scientists, researchers and caregivers across 51 hospitals in seven states. The power of this network is one of the reasons thousands of people choose Providence Neuroscience Institute of Spokane for their neurological care each year.
