Holy Name Medical Center’s New MS Center Welcomes Patients

Teaneck-based Holy Name Medical Center has opened a spacious, new 3500 sq ft. state-of-the-art MS Center. Since 1985, the MS Center at Holy Name Medical Center [HNMC] in Teaneck has served as a regional leader in MS care, providing unparalleled, comprehensive care to patients of all ages living with multiple sclerosis. The MS Center is one of a select few multiple sclerosis centers in the region – and the only facility in Bergen County, New Jersey – to be affiliated with the New Jersey Metro Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

“For almost 30 years, patients have come to Holy Name’s MS Center from throughout the metro area for the best possible, patient-centered care. Our new facilities will enable us to provide our patients and their families that excellent care with greater comfort and privacy,” says Mary Ann Picone, MD, Medical Director of the MS Center.

Approximately 1,800 patients from the greater New York metropolitan region visit the MS Center every year for its clinical excellence, personalized patient care and innovative clinical research. The MS Center at Holy Name takes a comprehensive approach to healing and has integrated MS services with other services throughout the hospital so that patients feel completely supported and cared for throughout.

“The new MS Center has been designed and will be operated so that our patients find a welcoming, comfortable environment, and our physicians, nurses and other health care providers can do what they do best, with everything close at hand,” says David Duncan, MD, Neurologist at HNMC’s MS Center.

The highly experienced, multidisciplinary team of neurologists and other MS experts provide a full spectrum of services tailored to the unique medical and emotional needs of MS patients. These services include advanced diagnostics, novel treatment strategies, and psychosocial, rehabilitative and supportive care. Receiving care at the MS Center means having full access to Holy Name Medical Center’s recognized doctors and a broad array of specialties, including preventive care, urology, ophthalmology, radiology, cardiology, gastroenterology, and women’s health as well as clinical research studies and neuropsychological evaluation. Holy Name Medical Center is committed to bringing patients the latest clinical discoveries as well as opportunities to participate in groundbreaking clinical trials. Holy Name Medical Center partners with the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey – New Jersey Medical School in Newark, New Jersey, Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation, and Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City, to give MS patients access to today’s most promising therapies that reduce the chances for relapse or further progression.
