Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Medical Center, located at 9250 Pinecroft Drive, Shenandoah, opened a dedicated neurosciences comprehensive patient care unit July 15.

The unit will house its existing 24/7 coverage of complex neurological care in a centralized setting. The unit also houses Montgomery County's first epilepsy monitoring unit, according to a press release.

"We have steadily added neurological care capabilities for the better part of the last decade, bringing much-needed services closer to people living in the area," Josh Urban, senior vice president and CEO of Memorial Hermann The Woodlands, said. "Adding the EMU [epilepsy monitoring unit] and concentrating our neuroscience inpatient services in one location was a natural next step in the best interest of our patients."

The new unit features 12 beds, customized patient rooms and family areas, specially designed beds for helping treat spine injuries and up to eight beds devoted to epilepsy admissions. 713-897-2300. www.memorialhermann.org.
