Top Neuroscience Experts - Right Here in South Jersey
Turn to Kennedy Health, a member of the Jefferson Neuroscience Network (JNN), for expert care close to home.

As one of only two hospitals south of Trenton to be designated as a Comprehensive Stroke Center by the New Jersey Department of Health & Senior Services, we're dedicated to bringing you top quality treatment when seconds count. That's why we designed a highly advanced neurosurgical operating suite specifically for complex, comprehensive care. That's why we have expert neurosurgeons and neurologists from both Kennedy and Jefferson on site 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

  • Jefferson Expert Teleconsulting (JET), the region's first university-based, high-tech mobile robotic system for acute stroke

Ultramodern Operating Rooms Provide Highest Level of Care

The Neurosurgery Suite at Kennedy is the latest concept in providing expedited care for patients requiring neurovascular intervention. This hybrid operating room allows the patient to be diagnosed and treated with either minimally invasive interventional procedures or open surgery in one room.

Having the latest surgical and biplane imaging in one room provides a safer environment for the patient (as there is no need to transport to another room), while allowing doctors to work more expediently, by allowing quick conversion from interventional to open procedures if needed.

Leading the Way with Innovative Technology

The 1,098-square foot, $5.7 million Interventional Neurosurgery Suite features Phillips Allura Xper Bi-Plane 3-D interventional radiology imaging equipment and Stryker video connectivity.

The bi-plane provides our highly trained medical team with a 360-degree view of the vessels of the brain, allowing them to remove blood clots in patients who have already had strokes, and/or prevent the rupture of a cerebral aneurysm by placing a “coil” in the vessel to prevent bleeding and brain injury. The combination of these precise techniques and advanced technology makes Kennedy Neuroscience Center the premier provider of successful neurological procedures.
