OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Oklahoma patients suffering from movement disorders are now able to visit a specialized center for care.

Recently, Mercy Health Foundation hosted a blessing and dedication ceremony for the Meinders NeuroScience Institute, which is located on the campus of Mercy Hospital Oklahoma City.

The newly-named Meinders NeuroScience Institute expanded neurology services for patients with movement disorders like Parkinson’s, Huntington’s Disease, essential tremor and dystonia.
