Marcus Neuroscience Institute
The Marcus Neuroscience Institute at Boca Raton Regional Hospital is an
innovative nexus for neurologic and neurosurgical care. The $52 million,
57,000 square-foot facility houses a 20-bed Neuro Intensive Care and Stepdown
Unit. The rooms, all of which are private, are equipped with special monitoring
capabilities that provide vital information on both the patient’s
neurological and cardiovascular functions. Each room features 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.
