Mandell MS Center

Our Vision for Localized, Comprehensive Treatment

Saint Mary’s Hospital has the opportunity to partner with The Joyce D. and Andrew J. Mandell Center for Comprehensive Multiple Sclerosis Care and Neuroscience Research – an internationally-recognized facility at Mount Sinai Rehabilitation Hospital in Hartford – and establish a new, dedicated MS treatment center at Saint Mary’s Hospital.

The Together Effect Makes MS Easier to Manage

Together, An Impact on Hundreds

According to the Connecticut Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, an estimated one thousand people with MS reside in the greater Waterbury region. Given that there are no local MS centers, individuals with MS must travel to centers in and out of Connecticut for their regular therapy or treatment – often travelling an hour each way on a weekly or monthly basis.

With a dedicated MS treatment center at Saint Mary’s Hospital, neurologists, physiatrists, urologists and infusion specialists – as well as physical, occupational and speech therapists – will work together to provide continuity of care in a local setting.

“Establishing a comprehensive, one-stop MS Center at Saint Mary’s Hospital will improve access to care for current and future patients. It will raise public awareness of this disease. And, it will provide new opportunities for provider and public education about diagnosing and treating this affliction.”
