Job ID: 1209164Employment Status: Full-TimeMore Information:Barnes-Jewish Hospital at Washington University Medical Center is the largest hospital in Missouri and is ranked as one of the nation's top hospitals by U.S. News & World Report. Barnes-Jewish Hospital's staff is composed of full-time academic faculty and community physicians of Washington University School of Medicine, supported by a house staff of residents, interns, fellows and other medical professionals. Recognizing its excellence in nursing care, Barnes-Jewish Hospital was the first adult hospital in Missouri to be certified as a Magnet Hospital by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.The Neurocritical Care Unit (NNICU) at Barnes Jewish Hospital is a 20-bed level 1 center caring for complex neurological and neurosurgical emergencies requiring advanced interventions and comprehensive neurocritical care. The Joint Commission-certified comprehensive stroke center NNICU provides a full complement of advanced neuro-monitoring, medical therapies and neurosurgical interventions.
