Whether patients are suffering from a temporary condition or need lifelong support, the neurology specialists at Memorial Healthcare are available to provide medical services and access to essential resources. Memorial Healthcare is based in Owosso and treats patients throughout the Midwest. The team is trained to diagnose and treat patients with a variety of disorders and works collaboratively with other providers to expand vital neurological services to communities statewide.

Memorial Healthcare Institute for Neuroscience 

At the Memorial Healthcare Institute for Neuroscience, patient education and a personalized approach to care are at the heart of each service. The medical team can diagnose complex neurological diseases and conditions and takes the time to discuss each patient’s individual needs and concerns while reviewing treatment plans.

The specialists have access to innovative technology, so patients receive state-of-the-art care at the facility. The institute is world-renowned in the neurology field and only one of three Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) care clinics in the State of Michigan. Since 2015, Memorial Healthcare has been one of the first hospitals in the state to administer innovative drug therapy treatments for migraines, spinal muscular atrophy, and other conditions.

Recognized as a Center for Comprehensive MS Care and a Partner in MS Care by National MS Society in February 2020, the Memorial Healthcare Institute for Neuroscience was one of the first organizations in the United States to research neurofilament light (NfL) technology for MS patients in a real-world setting. Our Institute is also one of the few sites in the United States that uses NeuroQuant software, which fosters early detection and treatment of MS, dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, and epilepsy.

Advanced Neurological Support at Memorial Healthcare

For patients who need long-term support to manage their condition, Memorial Healthcare is equipped to assist in several ways. Neurology specialty areas include:


Epilepsy is a chronic brain disorder that causes recurrent seizures. While this condition can arise due to injury, it may be the result of family tendency or an unknown trigger. The neurology team can diagnose this condition and recommend ways to help patients manage it daily.

Memory Care

The memory care clinic is available to support patients living with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia, as well as their loved ones. With help from Alzheimer’s Association, the clinic provides treatments, information, and other forms of assistance.

Multiple Sclerosis

Impacting the brain and spinal cord, multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease where the immune system attacks the body. Memorial Healthcare works with Michigan Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society to deliver comprehensive support. In addition to handling complex MS cases, the facility hosts MS research and clinical trials.

Stroke Management

Recognized for excellence in stroke care, the hospital treats patients presenting stroke-like symptoms. From emergency assistance to rehabilitation, the team supports the full continuum of care.

Muscular Dystrophy

Muscular dystrophy (MD) is a collection of diseases that cause weakness and loss of muscle mass over time. The care center provides assessments, interventions, and other services to support patients.

Spinal Muscular Atrophy

Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a genetic disease that causes muscle weakness and atrophy. The healthcare specialists help patients find out which type of SMA they have and outline the ideal course of treatment.

The Memorial Healthcare Institute for Neuroscience also has a pediatric neurology provider that caters to the needs of infants and children. The team works with families to diagnose, educate, and treat a range of pediatric neurological disorders.

Neurological Diseases Treated

Aside from the ones listed above, the specialists at Memorial Healthcare treat a wide range of other neurological conditions. The team uses leading-edge diagnostic tools to identify conditions and craft the ideal treatment plan for each patient, such as electroencephalogram (EEG), electromyography (EMG), and advanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology.

  • Headache/migraine
