Boys Town Pediatric Neuroscience Expands Care to Help More Families
Friday, October 2, 2020
When children need neurological care, they need this life-changing, and often lifesaving, care as quickly as possible. To help meet this need, Boys Town National Research Hospital is expanding pediatric neuroscience care with more physicians, clinics and telemedicine to provide even greater access to care for children in the Omaha community and across the region.
With the recent addition of three pediatric neurologists, Boys Town Hospital is one of the largest pediatric neuroscience teams in the state with a team of neurologists, neurosurgeons and pediatric specialists to provide care for co-occurring conditions.
Pediatric Neuroscience services are now available at three locations: Boys Town Medical Clinic - Pacific Street, 14080 Boys Town Hospital Road on Boys Town Campus; Boys Town Medical Clinic – Downtown, 555 North 30th Street, and an outreach pediatric neurosurgery clinic at CNOS Medical Clinic in Dakota Dunes, SD.
To reach more children and families across the state and our neighboring communities, patients can now meet with their neurology specialists online. This service has been especially beneficial for the Boy Town Autism Clinic, as it allows children to remain in the comfort and familiarity of their home while visiting with their specialist.
Boys Town Pediatric Neuroscience provides care for the whole child, from medical diagnosis and treatment to wrap-around services that address physiological, social, emotional and co-occurring conditions. We are excited to share of our growth and continue expanding neurological services that change the way America cares for children and families.
