About the Department


The Department of Neurology, including the Sub-department of Stroke Treatment, has 38 beds, including 16 beds in the Stroke Sub-department. Nine beds are designated for patients requiring intensive neurological supervision.
We perform the following diagnostic tests: CT of head and spine, NMR of head and spine, medical ultrasonography with Doppler method, EEG, cardiac monitoring: Echocardiography, ECG with Holter method, RR Holter monitor.
There is a possibility of highly specialist consultancy.
The Department includes the EEG Laboratory. The drug prescription programs enclose the patients with multiple sclerosis and dystonia, within the outpatient clinic of the Department.
Since 2010, patients with cerebral infarction are treated by means of thrombolysis by the highly qualified Staff of the Department. After completing treatment in the Stroke Sub-department, the patient – if necessary – is transferred to the Department of Rehabilitation of the hospital. In 2013 the Department of Neurology has been renovated and modernized. The experienced medical and nursing team, rehabilitation specialists, psychologist, speech therapist and occupational therapist provide the effectiveness of treatment.

For Patients


Patients are admitted for treatment on the basis of a referral  to the hospital. Admissions without referral are implemented in cases of sudden deterioration of the status of health and imminent threat to life.
Rules of admission:
  • Admission for hospital treatment under a physician’s referral for hospitalization takes place in the Central Admission Hall at ul. Skarbowa 1. The referring physician encloses the results of medical tests that justify the initial diagnosis. The original referral is attached to the hospital documentation.
  • Patient applies to the Central Admission Hall with a referral for hospital treatment with a document confirming his or her identity.
  • The physician of the Central Admission Hall makes an assessment of a patient’s status of health, analyzes provided results of medical tests and other relevant documents, on the basis of which the physician decides on the acceptance or refusal of the patient’s admission to the hospital.
  • Patients should have their own underwear, pajamas, articles of personal hygiene.
