Advanced Treatment for Neurological Conditions

When a child is referred to MultiCare Mary Bridge Neurology Clinic, they are placed in some of the most capable hands in the region. Our board-certified pediatric neurologists treat the full spectrum of nervous system disorders. They are skilled at working with every age group, from birth through adolescence.

Your Partner for Specialized Pediatric Care

Our family-centered philosophy focuses on promoting a patient's quality of life while including their families closely in their care. Every treatment offered by the Neurology Clinic is designed to return our patients to the normal activities of childhood and adolescence to the greatest possible degree.

Comprehensive Neurology Services

The Neurology Clinic offers diagnosis, intervention and advanced treatment for infants, children and adolescents with various neurological conditions including:

  • Abnormal movements, including Tourette Syndrome
  • Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD/ADD)
  • Autism and communication disorders
  • Cerebral palsy and developmental disorders
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Neuromuscular disorders
  • Seizures and epilepsy
  • Sleep disorders

When a child needs neurosurgical services, families have access to one of the area’s leading pediatric neurosurgeons, Dr. William Morris and Dr. Ronald Grondin of the MultiCare Neurosciences Center.

Leading-Edge Care

Through our facilities and association with MultiCare Health System, Mary Bridge offers patients immediate access to resources that include Sleep-Derived EEG, Video EEG, Ambulatory EEG EMG/NCS, CAT scans, MRI/MRA, Ultrasound, Sleep Study and EKG. The MultiCare Sleep Disorders Center is one of only a few sleep study centers in the state offering pediatric care, and our studies are interpreted by one of the few pediatric neurologist/sleep specialists in the nation.

Convenient Care, Closer to Home

Based in Tacoma, Washington, our Neurology Clinic team makes regular visits to Mary Bridge outreach clinics in Covington, Gig Harbor, Olympia, Puyallup and Silverdale, as well as to the Children's Therapy Unit at Good Samaritan Hospital. Whichever location is used, children receive care from the same highly skilled physicians, nurses and health professionals that have made Mary Bridge a trusted name in pediatric specialty care.
