Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center has opened a neurocritical care unit that's the first of its kind in Northern New England.
The 10-bed neurocritical care unit will treat patients post-surgery and those who have epilepsy, Parkinson's, aneurysms, and other complications.
Previously, many of those patients would be treated in the surgical intensive care unit.
“The care is good, but it's not specific to neurology. We would spend time in terms of education with the nurses and physicians there,” said Jeffrey Cohen, the neurology department chair.
