Banner Neuro Wellness
Banner Good Samaritan Medical Center is proud to offer Banner Neuro Wellness in Gilbert, Ariz.
Banner Neuro Wellness offers a “Safe Haven” of friendship, exercise, art, dance, education and support for individuals and families who are affected by Parkinson’s disease and other neurological movement disorders and/or conditions. It is a state-of-the-art program complementary to current medical treatments and therapies.
The facility opened in 2012 after Arizona resident and a Parkinson's disease patient, Sheila Fitzgerald, felt the need to have a resource for those diagnosed with the disease.
Patients and families participating in Banner Neuro Wellness can enjoy a better sense of community, increased socialization and a higher quality of life.
