A teaching hospital is FIRST

From the area’s first open heart surgery to the region’s first kidney transplant, Erlanger is where medical firsts happen…first. This legacy of innovation continues with breakthroughs like the Merci® retriever, a revolutionary stroke treatment procedure in which physicians literally grasp and remove blood clots from the brain without surgery—returning many patients to their normal activities within days.

Other Firsts:

  • Erlanger was the first Chest Pain Center in Tennessee , Georgia, or Alabama , sixth in the U.S. accredited by the Society of Chest Pain Centers and Providers and 16th in the U.S. to earn the highest level Accredited Chest Pain Center with PCI.
  • Erlanger operates the Chattanooga LifeStyle Center, the area’s first recognized center for preventive medicine, with rehab, fitness, and educational programs.
  • The region’s first Wound Care Center , featuring Level 1 accredited hyperbaric treatment, is based at the Erlanger Baroness campus.
