The Center for Brain Health will contain 75 exam rooms, 50 faculty offices, a 12-chair non-oncology infusion center and an outpatient pharmacy. The five-level building, 103,500 gross square feet in size, will provide ease of access for families and patients and meet their many needs under one roof.

Designed services include advanced clinical and research imaging by the region’s most powerful 7-Tesla magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system and a positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET-CT) system. The 7-Tesla MRI system will provide high-resolution images to inform diagnoses, treatment and research. Other clinical services will include phlebotomy, radiology, electrodiagnostic studies for the evaluation of neuromuscular disorders, and electroencephalography (EEG) to assist with the diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy.
