PROVIDENCE – The relocation of Rhode Island Hospital’s Department of Neurosurgery to the sixth floor of the Ambulatory Patient Center on Nov. 28 marked an important first step in bringing together the flagship disciplines of the Norman Prince Neuroscience Institute in a central location, according to Dr. G. Rees Cosgrove, chief of neurosurgery at Rhode Island and The Miriam hospitals and clinical director of the institute.

As a result, neurosurgery is now located together with neurology and psychiatry.

“Neurosurgery, neurology and psychiatry can now work more closely together, both clinically and in terms of research, to provide better, more comprehensive care to our patients suffering from complex neurological and behavioral disorders,” Cosgrove said.

The new institute was launched in August 2010 with a $15 million gift from the Frederick Henry Prince 1932 Trust. It seeks to enhance the profile and productivity of clinical neurosciences and research at Rhode Island Hospital and Brown University, creating a strategic, innovative and collaborative approach. It will be linked with brain research within the Brown Institute of Brain Science.
