Neurocritical Care at Thomas Jefferson University Hospitals By Fred Rincon, MD, MSc, FACP, FCCP, FCCM, FNCS The Jefferson’s Neuroscience Network leads the way in caring for the critically-ill neurological patients in Philadelphia and the Delaware Valley. A total of three Neuro-ICUs provide state of the art care of critically-ill neurological patients through multidisciplinary work. The Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience (JHN) is the only dedicated hospital for neurological patients in the region. At JHN we treat the largest combined volume of patients with tumors, strokes, ICHs, aneurysms, and AVMs in the Philadelphia region. The JHN operates a combined 26-bed Neuro ICU, and a separate 20-bed Stroke Unit. Additionally, a 14- bed Neuro ICU operates in the main hospital or Gibbon Pavilion, where other critically-ill neurological patients are primarily managed. 29
