When someone experiences a severe stroke, aneurysm or brain injury, rapid access to expert cerebrovascular and neurocritical care physicians can make all the difference. Treatment of complex cerebrovascular conditions requires outstanding quality to achieve excellent clinical outcomes.
Expert Neurocritical Care
Specialized neurological unitsPatients with the most complex stroke cases are cared for in Neuro Intensive Care Units at Wellstar Kennestone Hospital and Wellstar North Fulton Hospital. These specialized units are staffed by a multidisciplinary team of neurocritical care physicians, advanced practice providers and critical care registered nurses. These experts are fully dedicated to treating patients who have experienced strokes, aneurysms or other life-threatening neurological conditions.
Nationally-recognized careWellstar Kennestone Regional Medical Center and Wellstar North Fulton Medical Center are nationally-recognized for their high level of neurocritical care with Beacon Awards for Excellence by the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses. Only a small number of units in Georgia hold this distinction.
Follow-up careAfter experiencing a stroke, it’s important to see a neurologist quickly for follow-up care. Our neurocritical care team works closely to connect with a neurologist and start neurological rehabilitation quickly after discharge.
