Our Approach: Multidisciplinary Centers – Integrated Across Disciplines
A key strategic initiative for the RNI is the development of multidisciplinary centers with a focus on holistic patient care. In its first year, the RNI expanded the centers listed below, integrating multiple disciplines and forming a team of specialists. The team coordinates a comprehensive approach to optimize the diagnosis, management, and treatments of those impacted by neurological disorders. Planning is underway for future multidisciplinary centers.
