Leaders from the WVU Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute (RNI) and WVU Medicine Berkeley Medical Center cut the ribbon on a new, expanded clinic on Monday (Jan. 8) at the WVU Medicine Spring Mills Medical Office Building in Martinsburg.
The 14,000-square-foot clinic will open this month, replacing the current RNI location on Tennessee Avenue in Martinsburg. It will house a full complement of neuroscience services, including Neurosurgery, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Pain Management, Neurology, Neuropsychology, and Neurodiagnostics.
According to Dean Thomas, president and CEO of WVU Medicine Berkeley and Jefferson Medical Centers, the new clinic space will allow for the continued growth and expansion of brain health services in the eastern region.
“Devoting an entire floor in our largest medical office building to the Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute allows us to bring together neurosurgeons, neurologists, physiatrists, and neuro-psychologists in one space to be able to work together to provide seamless care for our neurosciences patients,” Thomas said.
Construction of the new clinic began on the third floor of the Spring Mills Medical Office Building in June 2023. It includes 32 exam rooms, five neurodiagnostic rooms, two neurology infusion suites, provider office spaces, a patient waiting area, and ancillary and support spaces.
“This state-of-the-art facility at Spring Mills will bring together expertise and capabilities for comprehensive care for patients and will provide world-class care for complex spine conditions, stroke, and more,” Ali R. Rezai, M.D., executive chair and director of the WVU Rockefeller Neuroscience Institute, said. “We appreciate partnering with the leadership at WVU Medicine Berkeley Medical Center and are grateful to Dean Thomas, Dr. Tom Thomas, and Dr. John Caruso for driving this expansion at Spring Mills and for their focus on treating neurological disease.”
The clinic, located at 61 Campus Drive, Suite 300 in Martinsburg, will be open to patients on Jan. 9. To schedule an appointment, call 304-596-5160.
“We’ve created an environment where patients want to come, where employees want to work and where providers want to practice,” John Caruso, M.D., chief of neurosurgery at Berkeley Medical Center, said. “This multidisciplinary office will allow for collaboration, innovation, and integration with an integrated group of physicians that are committed to delivering exceptional patient care.”
