Since 2009 the Lazio Region has been an experimental assignment for an ALS Patient management model. Numerous training courses were carried out to prepare medical and nursing staff for the management of the patient and care givers. Our UOC is followed by about 50 patients suffering from ALS with a hospital territory path that provides emergency management with dedicated bed in H24 at our UOC. About 15 admissions were made per year from 2013 to 14 for acute respiratory and nutritional events. Since February 2015, therapeutic management with acute stroke thrombolysis has been activated. A multidisciplinary protocol has been drawn up for the PDTA of the acute stroke patient accessing our hospital's emergency room.

Since February 2018 activation of the Stroke Unit equipped with 6 beds equipped with multi-parameter monitoring, located on the 9th floor of the New Wing of the Hospital. As of March 2019, 160 patients were subjected to systemic thrombolysis. In UOC Neurology are active specialist surgeries for Headache, Epilepsy, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson's M., Miastenia Gravis, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.
