Grady Health System’s Marcus Stroke and Neuroscience Center in Atlanta recently opened a new outpatient center that will focus on multidisciplinary care and is part of an expansion of the system’s research capabilities.
“Grady’s reputation as a regional destination for the advanced treatment of stroke and other neurological issues has led to significant growth,” Grady CEO John Haupert said in a release. “This new outpatient center will provide access to a greater number of patients who will benefit from our cutting-edge care.”
The new outpatient center was funded by a $10 million donation from Billi and Bernie Marcus through their foundation. Over the years, Grady Health System has benefited from more than $50 million from the foundation, which has allowed the system to thrive.
“We believed we could make an incredible impact on the treatment of stroke and neurological conditions here at Grady, and we have.” Bernie Marcus, who attended the opening event, said in the release. “Hundreds if not thousands of patients have been saved not only by the cutting-edge treatment offered here, but through research that has turned into life-saving solutions. What we have accomplished – and will continue to accomplish in the future – is something we can all be very proud of.”
