As part of UT Southwestern Medical Center, William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital offers world-class neurologic care to our patients, including the highest level of stroke care.
Many of our neurology services are offered in conjunction with other treatments at Clements University Hospital. Patients also gain access to the experts at the neighboring Zale Lipshy University Hospital, UT Southwestern’s neurological diagnostic and treatment center. In late 2020, upon completion of a major hospital expansion, Clements University Hospital will become the inpatient home to the Peter O’Donnell Jr. Brain Institute, consolidating our neurological services and improving the coordination of care.
Working together, we provide neurology patients with the compassionate, individualized care they need to achieve the best possible outcome.
At Clements University Hospital, we primarily provide neurological treatment when it is required to complement other care, such as heart care or cancer care. Our neurologic care team also offers consultative services in the following areas:
- Physical medicine and rehabilitation
If you or a loved one visits UT Southwestern for medical care, our team of neurology specialists are available as part of your treatment. Your care team will work with you and your loved ones to determine the best course of action.
Comprehensive Stroke Center
As a Joint Commission-accredited Advanced Comprehensive Stroke Center, Clements University Hospital has been honored with the highest certification for stroke care. Our team is passionate about providing fast, effective treatment for stroke patients, each of whom requires the highest level of care possible.
In our Emergency Room, we have the dedicated resources, staff, training, and procedures that make us a recognized leader in stroke treatment.
Our neurological care staff works closely with neurology professionals at Zale Lipshy University Hospital to provide each patient with the treatment he or she needs.
Zale Lipshy is one of the world’s premier neurological diagnostic and treatment centers. Collaborating with neurological experts both at Zale Lipshy and within Clements University Hospital enables us to create a higher standard of care, even for the most challenging cases.
If you’re admitted to Clements University Hospital and require more advanced neurological care, you may be transferred to Zale Lipshy. Your care team will work with you and your family to determine where your health care needs would best be met.
Our neurology team will only transfer a patient once he or she is stabilized. The transfer process is quick and seamless.
