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, hemorrhagic and ischemic strokes, aneurysms, subdural hematomas, post neurosurgical and interventional radiology cases. 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 team is comprised of RNs, LPNs, CNAs, and PCAs, utilizing each to the top of their scope.

We follow a 12- hour shift, weekends/holidays on a six-week schedule. Team members utilize a self-scheduling software, and employee requests are then used during the scheduling process to balance and coordinate with the department’s needs.

We pride ourselves in fostering a culture of positivity and team work. Our team has a passion for patient care and loves their coworkers.
