As a central nervous system disorder caused by progressive damage to the outer covering of the nerve cells, multiple sclerosis (MS) prevents nerves in the brain from communicating with the rest of the body.

Providence’s mission is to support the family and patient with compassion and understanding. The clinicians who provide care to our MS patients do it with the skilled and compassionate care they need — from disease management to physical therapy — while scientists throughout our hospital network continue to make strides in understanding and treating this debilitating illness.
