You deserve treatment and healing facilitated by a team of clinical professionals who appreciate the value of a medicine-meets-family approach.

Achieving recovery is our ultimate goal in the Medical/Surgical Unit. We care for both medical and surgical patients with respiratory, cardiac, gastrointestinal and other medical issues. The majority of our surgeries take place in the specialties of orthopedic, urological and general abdominal surgeries. We see a variety of patients, both adult and pediatric, receiving medicines, treatments or recovering post-surgery within our 24-hour, 40-bed inpatient unit.

The Med-Surg team is an energetic and versatile group that focuses on every aspect of the patient experience. Our multidisciplinary team assesses and treats patients with the goal to improve their condition. We accomplish this “whole-you” care with a dedicated corps of physicians, social workers, physical, speech and occupational therapists, respiratory therapists, pharmacists and dietitians.

Short-Term Rehab (Swing Bed) Program. When recovering from surgery, illness or injury, many patients find they need additional care – after their hospital stay, but before they are ready to return home. Through a special Medicare program, Erlanger Western Carolina offers this vital post-acute care to patients right at the hospital, close to your family and community. Learn more.

Heal with confidence. Our attentive nursing team embraces the high tech equipment at our disposal in order to restore patients to the best wellbeing level possible. The Medical/Surgical Unit is the recipient of Carolinas HealthCare System’s Silver Level Touchstone Quality Award for pressure ulcer prevention improvement.
