Marcus Neuroscience Institute
Welcome to the Marcus Neuroscience Institute at Boca Raton Regional Hospital,
an innovative nexus for neurologic and neurosurgical care. This new 57,000-square-foot
facility houses a 20-bed Neuro Intensive Care and Step-Down Unit, four
dedicated operating rooms — including one equipped with intraoperative
MRI and two with intraoperative CT capability — and a biplane angiography
suite, a crucial component in the diagnosis and care of neurological conditions.
Learn About Our Services & Capabilities
The Institute was created out of a lead $25 million grant from the Marcus
Foundation and was initiated by Billi and Bernie Marcus, former CEO of
The Home Depot.
The institute is staffed by a team of clinicians highly trained in all
facets of the neurosciences, including stroke, movement disorders, neuro-oncology,
epilepsy, memory disorders, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis
and spinal conditions. The medical staff also includes neurointensivists,
physicians who are specifically trained in neurocritical care. Along with
having extensive knowledge about treating neurological injuries, neurointensivists
assume responsibility for other areas of care in the ICU that may have
otherwise been provided by specialists. This includes cardiology, endocrinology,
infectious disease and pulmonary medicine.
Each patient room at the Marcus Neuroscience Institute is private and equipped
with special monitoring capabilities that provide vital information on
both a patient’s neurological and cardiovascular functions. Rooms
also feature an abundance of natural lighting and an antechamber where
family members can stay during the patient’s hospitalization, as
both of these factors have been shown to positively influence recovery
in neurological conditions.
Patients also benefit from the Institute’s synergistic relationship
with Boca Regional’s Eugene M. & Christine E. Lynn Cancer Institute
(LCI), offering patients with neurologic malignancies the most advanced
radiation and medical oncology therapies available in LCI’s renowned
and award-winning facility. The combination of LCI and the Marcus Neuroscience
Institute makes for a tandem of facilities, programs and services that
is among the finest in the nation.
The creation of the Marcus Neuroscience Institute represents a watershed
moment in the advancement of the neurosciences in Florida and beyond.
