UR Medicine’s Strong Memorial Hospital has been recognized by Becker's Hospital Review in its 2016 list of 100 Hospital and Health Systems with Great Neurosurgery and Spine Programs. This is the third consecutive year that the department has received this honor.

The list features hospitals and health systems that are “national forerunners in neuroscience, providing treatment for patients suffering from various conditions and injuries pertaining to the brain and spine.”

“This recognition is a testament to the dedication and excellence of our faculty, nurses, and staff and their commitment to provide the highest level of care to patients in our region,” said Webster Pilcher, M.D., Ph.D., the Ernest & Thelma Del Monte Distinguished Professor of Neuromedicine and chair of the Department of Neurosurgery.

Strong Memorial Hospital is a designated Blue Distinction Center+ for Spine Surgery and is the region’s only Comprehensive Stroke Center, as designated by the Joint Commission and the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association. The hospital is also home to the area’s only dedicated 24/7 Neuromedicine Intensive Care Unit.
