Barnabas Health Foundation Awarded $20,000 Grant from Multiple Sclerosis Foundation
The Multiple Sclerosis Comprehensive Care Center is the only facility in the region offering a full-service approach to MS under one roof. The MS Center provides diagnosis, comprehensive evaluation, treatment and follow-up under the direction of a board-certified neurologist/multiple sclerosis specialist and a nurse coordinator. Staff is committed to complementing the medical care provided by each patient’s primary care physician. Patients have easy access to other needed services in the same building, including infusion, physical and occupational therapies, psychological support, wellness approaches and pain management. The on-site Imaging Center features a 3.0T short bore MRI which produces the highest quality images in a clinical setting, and is especially useful in detecting minute abnormalities related to neurological diseases..
The MS Comprehensive Care Center is committed to the highest standards of excellence in clinical care, research, rehabilitation, education and patient advocacy. Recognizing that MS is a lifelong condition affecting the individual and entire family, we provide a multidisciplinary, holistic, therapeutic approach.
A unique program is available to promote the wellness of the patient who has multiple sclerosis with his or her family member, as they face the challenges of the disease. Together, patient and partner may benefit from our wellness gym and personal trainers.
Beyond Multiple Sclerosis
