The Neuro-ICU at Westchester Medical Center (WMC) in Valhalla, NY, is a 19-bed closed unit equipped with video-EEG and Moberg CNS multimodality monitors in every room. WMC, the flagship of the Westchester Health Network, is the only Level 1 Trauma Center and Comprehensive Stroke Center between New York City and Albany, and is the main referral center for 2.4 million people in the Hudson Valley. Our goal is to invent, study and discover better ways to treat patients with life threatening brain injury.
Our trainees have the opportunity to learn directly from our distinguished neurocritical care, pulmonary critical care, stroke, and neurosurgical faculty. Fellows are trained in the diagnosis and management of acute brain and spine trauma, ischemic stroke, subarachnoid hemorrhage, and all other neurological emergencies. The program also equips fellows with core critical care skills including airway placement, ventilator management, point of care ultrasound, and cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Fellows will rotate through the Medical and Trauma ICUs and have the ability to choose electives in, Stroke, Neuroendovascular, Radiology, Anesthesia, and Neurophysiology.
