PRESS RELEASE: September 2012
After nearly three decades of service to the Kansas City area, and in honor of its founder, the MidAmerica Neuroscience Institute is announcing a name change to Rowe Neurology Institute.
The management and board of the institute proposed the name change to reflect the vision and quality of the founding neurologist, Vernon D. Rowe, MD who received his training at Duke University and Johns Hopkins.
Dr. Rowe said; “I am honored by the name change, but also humbled at the same time. Our name is changing but our commitment to provide the highest quality, most comprehensive care possible to our patients and their families will remain.”
As in many other areas of the country, neurology is underserved in Kansas City and initial appointments can take months to schedule at some clinics. The institute’s goal has always been to see new patients within 3-5 days of their inquiry or referral. The Rowe Neurology Institute will continue to focus on four centers of excellence: Headache Center, Sleep Disorders Center, Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Center and Memory Loss Center
The Rowe Neurology Institute has grown significantly since its inception and has treated over 50,000 patients in a multitude of locations in and around the Kansas City region. There are currently 10 providers within the group and approximately 50 employees. The institute has locations in Johnson County and in North Kansas City and has agreements with all insurance companies.
