The Pickup Family Neurosciences Institute

The Pickup Family Neurosciences Institute has garnered regional and national recognition, including being listed in the top one percent of hospitals nationally for neurology and neurosurgery by U.S. News & World Report. From its earliest days, philanthropy has positioned PFNI to steadily expand its offerings, providing patients with the full continuum of innovative and advanced neurologic diagnostics, treatment and preventive care. The goal–ensure no one has to leave Orange County for world-class brain and spine care.


Today, PFNI stands on the verge of a giant leap forward. Fueled by the community’s continued generosity, PFNI is developing pioneering new programs and services and engaging in groundbreaking research that has the potential to transform brain and spine care delivery in our community and beyond.
