Louise Wilcox ALS Center

The Louise Wilcox ALS Center offers a specialized program of care that utilizes a multidisciplinary approach for the evaluation and management of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). The purpose of the Center is to enable the patient to maintain a maximum level of neurological functioning in a supportive and understanding environment. The Center provides assistance in the management of the physical, psychological and social conditions related to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. The Center is an active participant in the NorthEast ALS consortium (NEALS) for clinical trials and other research in ALS.

Medical personnel representing a variety of interrelated disciplines care for the specific needs of each ALS patient, including neurology, pulmonology, speech, occupational and physical therapy, nursing and social work. At each center visit, the multidisciplinary team meets and discusses each patient's therapies and prognoses, information concerning the disease process and management of symptoms. The Louise Wilcox ALS Center is located at The Neurology Foundation, Inc., 2 Dudley Street, Suite 555, Providence RI 02905.
