Title: Mayo Clinic Florida
Post by: Dave Likosky on July 14, 2012, 04:04:51 PM
The neurohospitalist program at Mayo Clinic Florida was established in 2005 with four neurohospitalists. It has grown to 5 neurologists, with four being neurovascular/stroke-boarded and one neurocritical care-boarded.

At the inception of the neurohospitalist program, the Mayo Clinic Florida practice had 17 neurologists with a wide range of subspecialties. The neurohospitalist program admits patients primarily and consults on other patients in the emergency department, floor/ward, and ICU. In 2007, a dedicated NeuroICU service was created; it manages all NeuroICU patients primarily and consults on all ICU patients with neurological issues (medical, surgical, and transplant ICU). In 2011, Mayo Clinic Florida started a neurohospitalist fellowship program, the first of its kind in the Southeast region. The program currently accepts one fellow per year. The Mayo Clinic Florida practice now includes 24 neurologists, providing service in 14 subspecialties. With 8 neurosurgeons and interventional radiologists, they are all engaged in Mayo's 3-shield mission focus on integrated patient care, education, and research. The neurohospitalist fellowship is based at the state-of-the-art, 214-bed hospital (opened April, 2008) at the unified Mayo campus in Jacksonville, FL.
