Kettering Adventist HealthCare recently consolidated three offices into one state-of-the-art brain and spine center located on the Kettering Medical Center campus. The new space allows for specialists in neurology, neurosurgery, anesthesia pain management, and rehabilitation to be in one location. This allows for a better multidisciplinary approach to patient care.
The new space has 39 exam rooms, digital imaging, a minor procedure room, and
an immersive dream room for creating relaxation, visualization, ambiance, and holistic stress relief.
