Saint Luke's Hospital Unveils Neuroscience Institute

The research ultimately resulted in Saint Luke's being named the first Stroke Solution Site by GE's Healthymagination initiative to improve world health which was published in the medical journal Stroke, December 2012.  Saint Luke's data was rigorously reviewed by Oxford Analytica demonstrating how SLNI's coordinated use of people, process and technology yields dramatically better outcomes for stroke patients.

The fundraising campaign for SLNI is led by honorary chairs Marshall Dean and Graham Hunt and chairs John MacDonald and Marilyn Rymer, M.D. More than $2.5 million in leadership gifts has been committed by the Deramus Family Foundation, the Hall Family Foundation, and the William T. Kemper Foundation, Commerce Bank, trustee. In addition, proceeds from the Saint Luke's Hospital Auxiliary's Holly Ball fundraiser in December will support SLNI's neurosurgical center. 

About the Saint Luke's Neuroscience Institute

Saint Luke's Neuroscience Institute, a member of Saint Luke's Health System, is a global leader in utilizing both drug and mechanical interventions to block and reverse the permanent and debilitating effects of ischemic strokes. Its legacy of innovation began in 1993 when doctors performed one of the world's first intra-arterial stroke reversal procedures. Since then, Saint Luke's specialists have continued to pioneer new stroke treatments and reverse stroke's debilitating effects for thousands of patients, and is one of the world's most experienced and prolific leaders in the use of Tissue Plasminogen Activator (t-PA), a clot-busting medication for treatment of  ischemic stroke.   SLNI, headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, brings together a team of the country's most accomplished neurologists to provide a comprehensive treatment center for the most complex neurological issues, such as stroke, epilepsy, brain tumors, facial pain, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's, headaches, aneurysms, and the latest in minimally invasive spinal surgical techniques.  SLNI's advancements in Neurology have made it a national leader in neurological treatment and care.
