The Institute brings together experts in the fields of neurology, neurosurgery, physical medicine and rehabilitation, speech, occupational and physical therapy, infusion therapy, phlebotomy, imaging and research to create an integrated approach to treatment.

Thanks to Robert “Bob” Bové, a local business leader and philanthropist, a $21.5 million commitment will help advance care in neurosciences and drive innovation through the HonorHealth Research Institute.

“The opening of this facility marks an important milestone for HonorHealth as a non-profit organization,” said Kim Post, RN, executive vice president, chief operations officer at HonorHealth. “Our goal is to continually provide greater access to care, and these services in one location allows us to meet those personalized needs for those suffering from spine and neuro disorders.”

The Bob Bové Neuroscience Institute at HonorHealth offers neurosurgical consultations for the diagnosis and treatment of brain and spine related disorders. They offer specialized services for other neuro and spine related conditions, including multiple sclerosis (MS), amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), back and spine intervention and pain management, headaches and movement disorders.

“These conditions are difficult to navigate, as many require a team of specialists in order to treat these complex issues,” said Post. “For specific conditions, our nurse navigation team is available to properly support and guide patients through their care plans.”

HonorHealth is known for its clinical research, and the Institute will conduct research projects and align appropriate clinical trials in the fields of neuro and spine research, giving patients access to these potential life-changing therapies in one location.
