  • Mission:
  • The mission of Colorado Neurological Institute is to enhance the delivery of personalized, comprehensive and state-of-the-art care to patients with neurological conditions through coordinated research, patient services and education.

  • Overview:
  • CNI has three focus areas: research, patient services, and education. Programs related to each focus area are listed below:

    1. Research: CNI promotes and coordinates research and clinical trials for a broad range of neurological conditions. CNI supports physician initiated studies each year. Currently, CNI is participating in over 50 research projects. A patient might not see a cure in his/her lifetime, but can find comfort in the fact their involvement in CNI's research studies will help find better treatment options and hopefully a cure for future generations.

    2. Patient Services: CNI collaborates with physicians to offer integrated and enhanced services. Value added services include patient care coordination and navigation, social work services, support groups, outpatient neurological rehabilitation, patient assistance fund, the Underserved Patient Rehab Program, multiple clinics for interdisciplinary care, and the Kids Cochlear Camp. CNI strives to be a resource center for patients and their caregivers, making it easy to obtain the information and services they need to make informed decisions about their health.

    3. Education: CNI provides education and outreach regarding stroke and other neurological conditions throughout Colorado. Our education team, consisting of CNI staff and volunteers, reaches thousands every year through free community health fairs, employee health fairs, outreach to school children, speaking engagements, the media, and other venues. CNI sponsors education events for disease specific patient and caregiver populations and professional education with physicians, nurses and therapists. Our educational events empower patients to take charge of their path and help physicians and families understand what patients face each day. Our programs aim to help patients live well with their conditions.

  • History:
  • CNI was founded in 1988 by Dr. Gary VanderArk to address the community need for access to comprehensive care, support, and resources for individuals with neurological conditions. Swedish Medical Center was a logical fit for CNI because the hospital has worked to become a neuro hub for the Rocky Mountain Region since the 1970’s. In 1989, CNI launched its Epilepsy Program and in 1990 CNI added the Denver Ear Institute and a microscopic teaching laboratory. In 1991, the Movement Disorders Program was added.

    By the mid 1990’s, CNI had formed a nonprofit board, hosted its first major fundraising event, and launched the Bert Goldberg Memorial Lectureship. Established as a leader in neurological care and research, CNI received the Colorado Parent Magazine’s “Colorado’s Best Companies for Working Families” award three years in a row. In 2001, our founder, Dr. VanderArk, received the American Association of Neurological Surgeons’ Humanitarian Award. The CNI Cochlear Kids Camp was started in 2002, a tradition still honored today. CNI recognized the need for a haven for those battling neurological conditions who were underinsured or uninsured and opened the NeuroHealth Center in 2004. CNI’s growth continued in 2011 with a move to our current location and the hiring of our current executive director, Tami Lack. This year is CNI’s 25th anniversary and the organization is working to expand community outreach efforts in order to better serve those with neurological conditions.
