In our critical care department, we have opened separate intensive care units – each designed to provide experienced nursing and support staff for each patient’s needs.
The Medical Intensive Care Unit at Fort Sanders Regional consist of 21 beds. Staff on this unit work to provide care for patients immediately after difficult surgeries, those patients with diagnosis of pneumonia, GI bleeding, and long-term ventilator patients.

As an organization, we want to grow our employees by promoting a culture of excellence and professionalism. Because of this, all non-certified patient care assistants who are hired at Fort Sanders Regional will be automatically enrolled in our no cost “Growing Excellence through Me” (GEM) program, where they will attend classes and receive training to qualify to sit for their Certified Nursing Assistant exam. Upon receiving a CNA certification, our employees graduate from the GEM program and receive an automatic pay increase.
In spring 2021, the critical care department at Fort Sanders Regional will be expanding. The Medical ICU unit will consist of 24 state of the art private patient rooms which allow and promote patient advocacy by incorporating family involvement. Each room will provide family amenities, encouraging positive patient outcomes.
