Scott & White Healthcare receives designation as Neuroscience Center of Excellence
Date:9/16/2010

Scott & White Hospital's Neuroscience Institute in Temple is among the nation's top neuroscience programs and has been designated as a Neuroscience Center of Excellence (COE), according to a 2006-2009 Neuroscience Center of Excellence Survey.

The 2006-2009 survey, sponsored by NeuStrategy, Inc., is the only one of its kind in the neurosciences and analyzed 175 neuroscience programs across 41 states. A hospital's overall performance is determined by measuring program progress in four key areas: clinical and research programs, staff, facilities and technology, and business.

2006-2009 marks the third release for the Neuroscience COE Survey. The assessment evaluated 150 hospital-based programs and only 42% of those programs received sufficient scores to be recognized as a 2006-2009 Neuroscience Center of Excellence.

This designation was awarded for the clinical and ancillary services provided by the institution, volume of surgical and medical patients, the breadth of physician specialties the facility has, as well as the amount of research performed in the field of neuroscience.

"Scott & White Hospital in Temple is proud to be acknowledged for its multidisciplinary approach and commitment to the highest standards of neurological and neurosurgical patient care," says Gerhard Friehs, associate professor of surgery at Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine and interim chairman of neurosurgery at Scott & White Healthcare.

Richard Lenehan, M.D., associate professor of neurology at Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine and chairman of neurology at Scott & White also commented "these survey findings underscore the importance of Scott & White's multi-specialty approach to providing care. In addition to offering the most comprehensive range of neurological specialists, Scott & White has state-of-the-art neuro-imaging technology, and as a result we offer the most comprehensive range of neurologic and neurosurgical specialists and patient services in the Central Texas region."
