Northwestern Memorial Hospital is one of only two designated Centers of Excellence in the Chicago area. Northwestern Memorial has received this prestigious award for their exemplary commitment to bringing comprehensive care to those suffering from Huntington’s disease as well as their families.
Danny Bega, MD, a neurologist and clinical director of the Huntington’s disease clinic says the designation helps to support the hospital's clinical care by providing more support to the patients and families they serve.
“This designation gives us the opportunity to focus on research, treatment, patient education and advocacy for patients and caregivers affected by Huntington’s disease,” said Bega. “It’s thrilling to see that a little over a year ago we started this clinic with a handful of patients and now it has grown as one of the premier institutions for Huntington’s disease in the Chicago area.”
