Duke University Hospital tops physicians’ choice for neurological conditions
More than 11,000 U.S. physicians ranked Duke University Hospital as a top hospital nationwide for stroke, multiple sclerosis, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) in a new Medscape survey. Duke University Hospital ranked in the top 10 in the nation for all three neurological conditions included in the survey, one of only seven institutions to do so. Duke University Hospital tied for 7th place for ALS and 9th for stroke. It also ranked 9th nationwide for multiple sclerosis.
“These rankings are the result of the dedication of physicians and staff have to providing exceptional care to patients with all neurological conditions, said Department Chair Richard O’Brien, MD, PhD. “They’re also a sign of the commitment to excellence all members of Duke Neurology made when we became a Department four years ago. I’m looking forward to what we can accomplish in the next year.”
