As part of Piedmont Healthcare’s expansion of the Neurosciences Service Line, Piedmont Atlanta Hospital opened its new Cerebrovascular and Endovascular Neurosurgery Operating Suite on Sept. 1.
The suite includes two state-of-the-art neurosurgical operating rooms with specialized equipment and enhanced video technology.
In April, Piedmont announced that it was building a world-class Neurosciences Service Line at Piedmont Atlanta, with particular focus on brain tumor, spine and cerebrovascular services.
The service line launched with the opening of a 10-bed Neuroscience Intensive Care Unit and 28 dedicated floor beds at Piedmont Atlanta, where people with a variety of neurological issues – including strokes, intrarcranial and subarachnoid hemorrhages, neuromuscular disease, craniotomies and Status Epilepticus – are treated. Early next year, the unit will move into the Marcus Tower and expand to 22 critical care beds and 48 floor beds.
