International Patients


International patients can be cared for by arrangement of the Seattle Neuroscience Institute.

The Seattle Neuroscience Institute is located in downtown Seattle, a city known for its sophistication, technology and diverse cultural offerings. Seattle, surrounded by Puget Sound, Lake Washington and Lake Union, with views of the Cascade Mountains and the Olympic Mountains, is considered one of the country’s most livable cities. With Mount Rainier looming majestically to the south of the city, Seattle is a cosmopolitan city well-known for its lush landscapes, moderate climate and multinational corporations.

Cultural attractions include nationally acclaimed opera, symphony, ballet, art museums and theater. Seattle also offers numerous professional sporting events and great recreational and family activities all year long.

Additionally, Seattle boasts fine hotels, diverse dining experiences, world-class shopping and a robust nightlife. The clouds and rain attributed to the Northwest make it a coffee lover, book lover and movie lover’s paradise.

The city also offers many churches, synagogues and mosques.

Seattle is a major port city for trans-Pacific and European trade. The Port of Seattle is the fifth largest container port in the United States and the 25th largest in the world.

Boeing, Microsoft, Amazon, and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation all call Seattle home. Boeing is the largest aircraft manufacturer in the world and consistently one of the top three exporters in the United States. Although Boeing corporate offices are now officially located in Chicago, most aircraft assembly still takes place in Greater Seattle. Microsoft is the world’s leading personal computer software company, but is only one of 2,500 software development firms in the state. Biotechnology also contributes to Seattle’s strong and diversified economy, and large retail employers include Nordstrom and Costco. Another business, which has become an icon of Seattle, is Starbucks, with its string of coffee stores across the nation and around the world.
