New location now available to patients in Boynton Beach
BOYNTON BEACH, FL – August 17, 2021 – Marcus Neuroscience Institute is expanding its services to Boynton Beach,
making breakthrough neurological care more accessible for northern and
central Palm Beach County patients seeking comprehensive treatment for
conditions affecting the brain, spine and peripheral nervous system.
The new location, at 2800 S. Seacrest Boulevard, Suite 160 in Boynton Beach,

Established in 2015, Marcus Neuroscience Institute, part of Baptist Health
South Florida, is an innovative center of care for neurologic and neurosurgical
care. Here, using cutting edge technology, experts address conditions
from brain tumors to back pain — and everything in between. That
includes movement disorders, seizures, life-threatening strokes and aneurysms,
memory disorders, migraines, spine conditions and diseases such as multiple
sclerosis and Parkinson’s, to name a few.
Marcus Neuroscience Institute, based at Boca Raton Regional Hospital, was
established with a lead gift of $25 million from the Marcus Foundation,
initiated by Billi and Bernie Marcus, the founder and former CEO of The
Home Depot. The Marcus Foundation has committed an additional $15 million
to expand the Institute, which houses four dedicated operating rooms —
including one equipped with intraoperative MRI and two with intraoperative
CT capability. The hospital is also the first in the nation to feature
both the highly sophisticated Siemens ARTIS Icono Biplane imaging equipment
and the Corindus CorPath GRX Robotic surgical system in one place.
Using state-of-the art technology that promises to become tomorrow’s
standard of care, the Institute recently performed their first robotic-assisted
spine surgery using the highly advanced Mazor X™ Robotic Guidance
Platform, which combines 3D pre-operative planning, robotic guidance and
intra-operative surgical navigation.
“We are very well equipped with the newest technology,” says
neurosurgeon Frank Vrionis, M.D., director of the Institute. “Our
goal is to bring the most advanced care to as many people as possible,
changing lives as we address a wide range of cases, including the most
delicate and complex.”
Beyond a stunning facility and sophisticated technology, the Institute
is highly regarded because of its exceptional standard of care. Marcus
Neuroscience Institute is home to the neurological residency program of
Florida Atlantic University’s Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine.
Marcus Neuroscience Institute has earned the Gold Seal of Approval® for Spinal Surgery Certification from The Joint Commission, the nation’s
premier independent accreditation organization. The Gold Seal reflects
commitment to the highest standards of excellence and safety in patient care.
The Institute also has been recognized as a comprehensive stroke center
by DNV GL Healthcare, a nationally recognized certifying organization,
and has been certified as a Thrombectomy-Capable Stroke Center by The
