Neuroscience Center

Alaska's Premier Comprehensive Primary Stroke Center – featuring a dedicated inpatient and rehabilitation unit.


Providence Alaska Neuroscience Center was originally developed in 2008 to support patients and their families with neurological disorders. Now, called the Providence Neuroscience Institute, Providence Alaska works in collaboration with outside Providence and affiliate hospitals to develop a networking model to ensure our patients receive the best possible care and outcomes. Providence has been and still is recognized by The Joint Commission as Alaska’s Premier Primary Stroke Center. Our services combine compassion, dedication and clinical excellence to deliver evidence-based care to meet individual patient needs in both inpatient and outpatient settings. The Neuroscience Institute is overseen by a credentialed, board-certified vascular neurologist serving as a physician leader and the program’s medical director.
