The campus of Community Regional Medical Center is home to one of the most sophisticated and comprehensive neuroscience centers in the state — the Bob Smittcamp Family Neuroscience Institute.

Working in partnership with the UCSF Fresno Medical Education Program and doctors, we offer some of the finest neurosurgeons in the country. With dedicated surgical suites, and using the most advanced technologies available for the brain and spine, our highly trained neurosurgeons are able to perform the most delicate procedures. 

Our programs offer leading-edge technology and a team of skilled neurosurgeons, nurses and clinical staff who provide neurological care that’s truly unrivaled in the Central Valley. Having this care available locally means you have access to specialists who are close to home and part of the community.

The 52-bed neuroscience unit and 20-bed critical care unit have dedicated healthcare professionals who are specially trained to care for your unique needs following surgery.
