California hospital to open $58M neurosciences center

La Mesa, Calif.-based Sharp Grossmont Hospital plans to spend $58 million on a new neurosciences center, The San Diego Union-Tribune reported Jan. 2. 

Four details: 

1. The Sharp Grossmont Hospital Neurosciences Center — the proposed name for the facility — plans to set aside 50 patient beds for brain-related care, from stroke to cancer. 

2. Initial investment for the project will focus on bed space for specialized neurological patients, while long-term proposed plans include an additional surgical annex with more operating rooms that feature some of the latest robotic and imaging techniques. 

3. Construction is slated to start in the fall of 2022. The project is being funded through philanthropy and borrowing. 

4. The goal of the facility is to centralize care for patients with neurological conditions. 

"Success for these patients require[s] the integration of many different allied kinds of care including nutrition, speech therapy, swallow therapy, palliative care, rehabilitation therapy," said Perry Mansfield, MD, an ear, nose and throat specialist who specializes in the removal of head and neck tumors. "Coordination in one location, with one integrated team, creates a flow of care that’s critical in terms of having positive outcomes for the patient," Dr. Mansfield told the Union-Tribune.
