Partnership to result in better patient care, research, training

06262015-7905We are continuing our promise to enhance the community and better serve the people of Toledo.

Through the Academic Affiliation between The University of Toledo and ProMedica, our College of Medicine and Life Sciences and the regional health-care system have opened a new Neurosciences Center to advance medical education, research and care for patients with neurological disorders.

Situated on Central Avenue near ProMedica Toledo Hospital, the new 122,000-square-foot facility unites UT faculty, physicians and researchers with ProMedica physicians to build synergies to improve the quality of life for people living with disorders of the brain, spine, nerves and muscles.

More specifically, physicians and allied health-care professionals treat an array of neurological conditions at the new Neurosciences Center, including Alzheimer’s disease and dementia; stroke; epilepsy; brain aneurysms and tumors; vestibular disorders that may cause dizziness and balance issues; and mobility disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease.

Patients have more convenient access to myriad outpatient services all located under one roof – from physician clinics, radiology and diagnostics to rehabilitation therapy and a research clinic – which will better serve the needs of neurological patients throughout our region.

Direct interaction among UT’s scientific researchers and clinical staff provide patients with advanced treatments, plus offer our medical students, residents and fellows a wider variety of experiences, enhancing their education and the discovery of new knowledge to combat neurological diseases.

Additionally, the interdisciplinary setting of the new Center provides our researchers and students access to a greater number of clinical trial participants, as well as a wider breadth of clinical experience due to increased patient volumes and exposure to complex disorders.

The new Neurosciences Center connotes a $57-million community investment in neurosciences care, academic training and research, which will further help the University to attract and retain top faculty and physician candidates in the future. Moreover, embedding expanded, real-world clinical experiences into the UT experience not only advances our students’ academic and research success, but also fulfills our goal of providing world-class care to patients.

Thank you for continuing to support our efforts as your alma mater continues on an upward trajectory to improve our national reputation and serve the region. The progress we’re making is a direct reflection of the support we receive from our alumni, donors, faculty, staff and other key stakeholders. Go Rockets!
