Primary care for you and your family, close to home.
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 these complex cerebrovascular conditions requires outstanding quality to achieve excellent clinical outcomes.
Our team of cerebrovascular and endovascular physicians are all fellowship-trained and have treated thousands of patients with these complicated—and sometimes rare—conditions. They have the expertise to handle unique cases, and the program provides access to novel treatments through clinical trials for patients with more severe neurological injuries.
With the largest Joint Commission Stroke Certified hospital network in the Southeast, Wellstar is a leader in providing efficient, quality, personalized care to every patient, every time. We aim to be a trusted partner for patients, EMS and hospitals requiring tertiary services for cerebrovascular patients.
Management of these challenging cases is conducted using a multidisciplinary team approach which broadens the quality care our patients receive.
Wellstar’s expert cerebrovascular and neurocritical care team performs:
Patients with the most complex stroke cases are cared for in Neuro Intensive Care Units (ICU) at Wellstar Kennestone Hospital and Wellstar North Fulton Hospital.
These specialized units are staffed by a multidisciplinary team of neurocritical care physicians, neurologists, and nurses. These experts are fully dedicated to treating patients who have experienced strokes, aneurysms or other neurological conditions. Wellstar Cobb, Kennestone, and North Fulton hospitals are nationally recognized for this level of 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.
After a patient has had a stroke, it’s important to see a neurologist quickly for follow-up care. Count on our neuro team and network of neurologists to ensure a smooth transition, from the hospital stay to follow-up medical care and neurological rehabilitation.
