The Neuroscience Center is a 26 bed unit, located on the 5th Floor of our Saint Paul Campus. On this unit we care for a wide spectrum of children, ranging from infants to young adults, requiring treatment and management for both acute and chronic conditions from our dedicated care givers for epilepsy/seizure disorders within our Level IV Epilepsy Monitoring Unit, post-operative neurosurgery care, general medical/surgical care, along with children in acute behavioral health crisis. Our patients have an average length of stay ranging from overnight to several weeks for specialty treatment and care. Patients on the Neuroscience Center are cared for by a cohesive group of inter-disciplinary teams that include child life, social work, epileptologists, neurosurgeons, integrative medicine, dietitians, case managers and other specialists. Our team prides ourselves on teamwork, quality care, open and respectful communication, and promotes a culture of safety while also encouraging learning and professional growth. Our team is committed to providing excellent care to our patients and families every day, and loves the populations we serve.
