On the brain

In January, Stanford Health Care opened a new, comprehensive outpatient facility on its Hoover Pavilion campus in Palo Alto for patients with neurological disorders.

The Stanford Neuroscience Health Center brings together 21 neuroscience subspecialties to provide integrated patient care and conduct research on new treatments in neurology, neurosurgery and interventional neuroradiology. Among the new building’s features: state-of-the-art imaging, a balance and gait lab, a wellness center, an outdoor garden where patients can practice walking on different surfaces and a testing lab for disorders of the autonomic nervous system.
