Welcome to the Yale Division of Neurocritical Care and Emergency Neurology. Here, you will find a multidisciplinary team dedicated to improving the lives of patients and families who have suffered from acute neurological injury. Our neurointensivists, neurosurgeons, nurses, and therapists work in the first and only dedicated neuroscience intensive care unit in Connecticut. Our team consists of international leaders in clinical care, research, and education. 

The Yale Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit aims to provide the most sophisticated and empathic care possible to critically ill patients with nervous system injuries. Our goal is to bring together considerable breadth and depth in humanism and in science - across diverse areas of expertise - to be the premier neuroscience intensive care unit in the world. We constantly work towards this goal by adhering to the following values: 

  • Honesty, respect, support, and open communication from and among our multidisciplinary team 
  • Highest standards of patient safety and patient/family-centered care
  • Compassion and kindness in all our interactions
  • Environment that fosters the growth and development of our trainees so they are ready to become tomorrow's leaders in the clinical neurosciences
  • Relentless pursuit of scientific advances that directly improve the lives of our patients
We are committed to bringing scientific advances to our patients and providing cutting-edge therapies in a compassionate environment. We encourage you to contact our team to learn more.
