You Deserve Expert Care in your Critical Moments.

At Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center, our critical care services are here to provide the people of East Tennessee with the critical care services you want and need. 

In February 2021, the hospital completed construction on our two brand new critical care floors, located on the fourth and fifth floors of the Center for Advanced Medicine. Our state of the art critical care department was designed with our patients and their loved ones at the forefront of our minds. 

Our Critical Care facilities feature ample space for families to remain with their loved one and take part in their care. Our department’s rooms feature modern advancements, including in-room dialysis connections, telehealth ICU capabilities, and lifting equipment to safely mobilize and move our patients. 

Our critical care units offer a calm, quiet healing environment for our patients receiving critical care as well as for their loved ones.
