January 15, 2019: The Madlyn Borelli Multiple Sclerosis Center at Montefiore Nyack Hospital has been officially renewed as a Center for Comprehensive MS Care through the National MS Society’s Partners in MS Care program. This formal recognition honors the Center’s commitment to exceptional patient care; providing coordinated, comprehensive MS care; and a continuing partnership with the Society to address the challenges of people affected by MS. The Hospital’s Center is led by Jai S. Perumal, MD, Director and Jennifer Reardon, ANP.
Designation as a Center for Comprehensive MS Care recognizes the need for patients to have access to a full array of medical, psycho-social and rehabilitation services to address the varied and often complex issues related to living with MS, a chronic disease. The Center focuses on the total care of the patients with MS and facilitates a multifaceted approach involving a variety of specialties and expertise.
“Our commitment to providing the most comprehensive services for the Multiple Sclerosis community remains steadfast as recognized by the National MS Society,” said Hospital Chief Medical Officer and Vice President, Anthony Matejicka, DO. “It is a testament to the care provided by our experts that patients come from as far away as 100 miles or more.”
