The new Sheikh Zayed Tower and The Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children’s Center allow the Departments of Neurology and Neurosurgery to provide technically advanced research and patient-focused care.
The Sheikh Zayed Tower houses many of the neuroscience specialty centers, including:
- The brand new 24-bed Neurosciences Critical Care Unit (NCCU) staffed by neurology, neurosurgery, and neuroanesthesiology/critical care
- State-of-the-art adult and pediatric operating rooms, complete with an intra-operative MRI machine that provides real-time images of the brain during surgery
- A specialized Epilepsy Monitoring Unit, a 6-bed inpatient unit enhanced with the latest technologies and uniquely designed for the patients’ needs.
- Adult inpatient units with 58 beds, including the Brain Recovery Unit (BRU)
The specialized care teams devoted to neurology, neurosurgery, and critical care include nursing, neuroanesthesiology, neuroradiology, neurological electrophysiology, a cerebrovascular diagnostic laboratory, a neuropsychiatric service and a center for multidisciplinary evaluation and treatment of pain. Pediatric Neurosurgery, a division of the Department of Neurosurgery, is headquartered in The Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children’s Center.
The Sheikh Zayed Tower and The Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children’s Center provide integration of all these activities, in an innovative setting.
An affiliated hospital, the Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, is an acute patient care facility with modern operating rooms and intensive care units where residents spend a portion of their residency training.
