Methodist Mansfield opens new Neuro Critical Care unit

Mansfield, Texas – Methodist Mansfield Medical Center proudly announces the grand opening of their new Neuro Critical Care Unit (NCCU), a 32-bed unit that will improve care for patients with a wide range of neurological issues, including strokes, brain tumors, and severe spinal injuries. The unit is equipped with the latest artificial intelligence technology that can rapidly analyze and interpret scans allowing physicians to immediately intervene. The unit will also use the newest renal replacement therapies, ultrasound, and bedside EKG and Echo machines. The unit is staffed by a team of neurologists, neurosurgeons, critical care nurses and rehabilitation specialists to treat individuals suffering from severe brain or spinal cord injuries, strokes, brain tumors, seizures, severe infections affecting the nervous system, and other life threatening neurological conditions.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house event took place at 10 a.m. on Thursday, January 18 on the 5th floor of Tower B at Methodist Mansfield Medical Center. Esteemed community leaders, medical professionals, and stakeholders gathered to commemorate the unit.

“The Neuro Critical Care Unit represents our unwavering dedication to providing unparalleled care to individuals facing neurological emergencies,” President of Methodist Mansfield Medical Center Juan Fresquez said, “It’s a testament to our commitment to the well-being of our community.”

The open house offered an exclusive opportunity for attendees to tour the state-of-the-art NCCU facility, witness demonstrations of cutting edge technology, and engage with the Medical Director of Neurosurgery Richard Meyrat, MD, and other neurosurgeons on the medical staff.
