Saint Alphonsus Neuroscience Institute is the region's destination for tertiary neurosurgery and neurological care. Our care philosophy is to provide high quality, cost effective health care that is focused on healing the individual needs of the patient's mind, body, & spirit. In addition to access to neurology care in Boise, the Neuroscience (brain and nerve) Care Program strives to keep care close to home. Our outreach clinics in Nampa, Fruitland and Twin Falls, Idaho, bring outpatient neurology services to local communities. Life-saving treatment for acute stroke care can begin sooner through the use of Telestroke, which brings stroke neurologists to any Emergency room (ER) in the Saint Alphonsus Health System.
The overall strength of Saint Alphonsus Neurosciences is the team approach to patient care. Our multidisciplinary team composed of, emergency, neuroradiology, neurology, neurosurgery, physiatry, nursing, & physical therapy, uses evidence-based standardized protocols, meets regularly to discuss outcome data and allow the data to drive performance, and is focused on the mission of Saint Alphonsus hospital.
