TriStar Centennial Medical Center has completed the 10th floor of its inpatient tower, adding 30 patient rooms dedicated to treating neurology patients. The project was the final phase of a four-floor expansion at the 741-bed medical center. The floor features three different levels of care for neurosciences patients including an eight-bed neuro-intensive care unit (ICU), eight-bed step-down unit and 14-bed medical/surgical unit.
The unit is staffed by physicians, nurses and rehabilitation therapists specifically trained to treat neurology and neurosurgical patients including stroke, TIA, brain hemorrhage, aneurysms and seizures, among other conditions. The floor was designed with the patient's experience in mind and includes the latest monitoring capabilities to quickly detect warning signs of a potential emergency.
