The Beaumont Neuroscience Center of Excellence consolidates services in new $22 million building

Beaumont Health System

has unveiled the new Beaumont Neuroscience Center of Excellence at their Royal Oak campus.
 
The $22 million, 80,000-square-foot facility serves as a comprehensive consolidation of multiple neurological services for children and adults that were previously available throughout the Royal Oak campus.
 
“We decided to bring those services together in one building to help get patients through the Center,” says Victoria Hollingsworth, Vice President of Neuroscience Administration at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak. “This way they can see the neurologist, the neurosurgeon, and get diagnostic testing all done in the same location. The Imaging Center is also connected. We believe with this population that it is very important that they’re not going [all around to] different locations.”
 
The three-story Neuroscience Center, the first new building on the Royal Oak campus in over 10 years, is now fully operational with 19 different clinics located within. The new building also features state-of-the-art video wire conference rooms that allow physicians to collaborate with patients and with each other without being in the same room. It also allows resident physicians to observe procedures remotely without being in the same room and making patients feel uncomfortable.
 
Hollingsworth says they also worked very hard to make the building as energy-efficient as possible, with details like motion-activated lights and recycled materials used for the flooring and walls, and all furniture was made in the state of Michigan by Holland-based manufacturer Haworth.
 
The spaces vacated elsewhere in the Royal Oak campus from the clinics that moved into the new Center will allow space for newly-employed physicians’ offices and additional space for those interested in expanding. “All those spaces will be renovated and modernized to bring them up to the modern day,” Hollingsworth says.
