HATTIESBURG — Forrest General Hospital has been designated as a Neuroscience Center of Excellence, according to the 2006-2008 Neuroscience Center of Excellence Survey, sponsored by NeuStrategy Inc., Chicago ranking the hospital among the nation’s top neuroscience programs.
The 2006-2008 survey, the only one of its kind in the neurosciences, analyzed 150 neuroscience programs across 41 states. A hospital’s overall performance is determined by measuring program progress in four key areas — Clinical and Research Programs, Staff, Facilities & Technology and Business. Of the 150 hospital-based programs evaluated by the survey, only 42 percent of the programs received sufficient scores to be recognized as a 2006-2007 Neuroscience Center of Excellence.
“Center of Excellence designees represent many of the leading, innovative programs across the country, and Forrest General is proud to be acknowledged for our multidisciplinary approach and commitment to the highest standards of neurological and neurosurgical patient care,” said Evan Dillard, Forrest General COO.
