OUR EXPERTS HAVE YOUR BACK. (AND YOUR BRAIN.)
INTRODUCING OUR NEW SPINE & BRAIN INSTITUTE. Now that our hospital is under local control, weâ€™re able to create programs when we see a need. And now, in collaboration with the Mt. Tam Spine Center and UCSF Department of Neurosurgery, we offer access to world-class, comprehensive spine and brain careâ€”at a single Marin location. Our Spine & Brain Institute is the areaâ€™s only program with focused brain and spine surgery expertise. We use evidence-based medicine, which considers all aspects of a patientâ€™s condition before deciding on a treatment plan. All members of our health team, from
surgeons to radiologists to physical therapists, work together to coordinate the right care, resources, and technology based on each patientâ€™s individual needs. Weâ€™re enhancing both our personnel and technology capabilities in the Emergency Department to better respond to brain and spine injuries, and treat disease more effectively. We also collaborate closely with top-ranked physicians at UCSF to treat our patients here in Marin. This spares you the red tape and inconvenience of crossing the bridge, while ensuring you the best care the area has to offer.

Say Goodbye to Bad Hair Days!
Jeepers! Itâ€™s Best of Marin 2011 and time to crank up the Stutz Bearcat for another trip round the countyâ€™s finest in food, drink, customer service and entertainment. This year is our salute to the beeâ€™s kneesiest decade of them all, the 1920sâ€”the age of jazz, bathtub gin, and Charleston-crazed It Girls. The decadence of the flapper era is one many Marinites can relate to, as weâ€™ve come to expect the very best from our restaurants, niteclubs, home improvement centers and beauty supply companies. So never mind the Boardwalk Empireâ€” come join the Marin Empire. You wonâ€™t have to speak easy, when talking about whoâ€™s the Best of Marin.
