Caring for Stroke and Spine Patients in over 170 Hospitals
Neuroscience is a major treatment program at HCA and has a presence in all of our 170+ hospitals in 20 states and the United Kingdom. We have 25 comprehensive stroke centers and our neuroscience service line currently includes more than 1,700 neurologists and neurosurgeons.
Stroke and spine patients represent the majority of admitted patients, with people suffering from brain tumors, epilepsy and movement disorders comprising a secondary group. Our surgeons perform about 40,000 spine surgeries and 15,000 brain surgeries annually, and we treat more than 50,000 stroke patients every year.
Support and Stability from a Deep-Rooted Healthcare Company
The strength of the HCA infrastructure gives our physicians exceptional administrative support so they can focus on the needs of their patients. This robust support includes a self-insured malpractice plan, managed care negotiations, back office support and a host of other business functions. Having treated patients since 1968, we offer the security and stability to withstand the ever-changing nature of healthcare regulation.
Neuroscience physicians at HCA partner directly with administrative and clinical leaders to grow the company in ways that are best for patients. Our dyad leadership structure pairs an administrative leader with a clinical leader to achieve shared goals, so that the strategy of our neuroscience program always incorporates the needs of the patient.
At the Forefront of Industry Technology and Research
Clinical performance among HCA neurology and neurosurgery patients exceeds industry benchmarks, and we regularly participate in leading clinical trials, such as DAWN ESCAPE and MR CLEAN. Our commitment to research provides opportunities for our neuroscience physicians to shape local and national landscapes.
Our neurosurgeons are equipped with leading edge technology, including 19 Mazor systems for spine robotics and seven Gamma Knife programs.
We invest heavily in tools and technology, giving our physicians access to innovative surgical and diagnostic tools. To continually improve patient outcomes, we support the rise of emerging neuroscience careers, including endovascular neurosurgeons, interventional neuroradiologists and neurohospitalists.
