At Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center we specialize in neurological treatment and hold the longest running comprehensive stroke certification in the region - we provide full cycle, cutting edge stroke treatment including neurosurgical procedures, and neurointerventional radiology. We are a tertiary referral center for stroke and neurological care, meaning other hospitals trust us with their most complex patients.
The Neuroscience unit (5 North) at Fort Sanders Regional is a 35 private bed unit providing care for patients with neurological symptoms, including patients undergoing neurosurgical interventions and/or procedures. Patients who come to 5 North are often recovering from Cerebrovascular Accidents (CVAs, also known as strokes) or seizures. We specialize in the treatment of the post-operative patient including C fusion operations (posterior and anterior), laminectomy, craniotomies and spinal surgeries.
Our staff consists of RNs, LPNs, CNA/PCAs, and HUCs who work together to provide exceptional patient care. In addition to having excellent critical thinking skills, our ideal candidate will also possess outstanding communication and interpersonal skills.
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.
