Serving Ashland and Surrounding Counties

We’re growing to meet your needs! Beginning August 1, 2016, the UH Neurological Institute will offer services in Ashland, including a Neurology Clinic. This is an exciting endeavor for us, for our patients, and for you, as your number one request for subspecialty support services was neurology care.

Leading experts in neurology, neurosurgery and other specialties collaborate to devise customized care plans using the latest clinical advances and technologies.
