Built around the needs of the patient, the UF Health Neuromedicine Hospital is designed with safety and efficiency in mind. Patients have streamlined access to highly specialized, comprehensive outpatient treatment options and inpatient services in one location. They also benefit from outstanding faculty physicians and clinical experts collaborating in a world-class medical facility designed to meet their unique needs, with improved efficiency and operations as well as a welcoming, accessible design.
Inpatient features include:
General operating rooms (ORs)
- Three neurosurgery ORs
- Two neurosurgery ORs with intraoperative MRI capabilities
- Intraoperative MRI technology in the OR creates advanced imaging of the brain during neurosurgery.
- Real-time images of the brain during a procedure help guide the neurosurgery team to immediately determine more precisely if they have successfully removed brain tumors and other abnormalities, versus having to wait for a follow-up MRI and possible additional surgical procedure.
- This level of accuracy with the most technically advanced equipment helps us provide the best possible outcomes for our patients.
- Two neurosurgery hybrid interventional ORs
- Hybrid ORs enable surgical teams to accommodate several different procedures simultaneously. Patients with complex conditions do not need to be transported to different locations to undergo lifesaving surgeries or advanced imaging.
Pre- and Post-Operation Unit and Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU)
- 38 pre/post-op rooms
- 16 PACU beds
- This is where patients go before they undergo a surgical procedure, and where they are taken for recovery following their procedure while anesthesia wears off.
- 48 private ICU rooms, equipped with patient lifts, bedside dialysis and surgical procedure lights to lessen the need to move patients; accommodations for family, including furniture (table top and sofa/bed).
- 48 medical/surgical private inpatient rooms with accommodations for family, including furniture (table top and sofa/bed).

- It will also provide all standard TV channels, relaxation and white noise channels, and the ability for patients to stream their own media.
