All the Support Services in Place

Yale-New Haven Hospital is a level one trauma center, fully equipped to handle complex spinal cord injuries. Yale’s spine patients who undergo surgery benefit from specially equipped surgical suites outfitted with the latest technology, and they recover in Yale-New Haven Hospital’s ten-bed Neurosurgical Intensive Care Unit (NICU), the only specialized unit of its kind in the region staffed with neuro critical care nurses with many years of experience caring for neurosurgery patients. The health care team continuously challenges current practice to ensure their programs reflect the most advanced treatment options delivered in a way that enhances the well being and comfort of patients.
