Hospital Medicine | Inpatient Care

Inpatient Medical Surgical Unit

There are 25 beds in the inpatient medical/surgical unit of the hospital. A team of clinical professionals provides individual care to patients in this primary inpatient unit, using nationally standardized clinical paths and protocols.

Many of our nurses have had extensive training and experience in specialty areas. Working as a team, our nurses, case manager and social worker follow patients from admission to discharge. Individual patient education and coordination of after-care are a major focus for the staff.

Care is provided to all populations, infant, adolescent, adult and geriatric. A dedicated room is available to care of patients at the end of life.

Inpatient Visitor Guidelines

There is no restriction on visiting hours, but access to the hospital is limited after 8 pm. In rooms with more than one patient, we ask that visitors be considerate of the privacy and needs of the other patient.

Intensive Care Unit (ICU)

The ICU provides round-the-clock critical care for the sickest patients. The ICU is staffed by a highly trained and competent team who handle life-threatening medical, surgical or cardiac conditions. Clinical professionals work closely with patients, families and other health care providers to achieve the best outcomes and minimize anxiety and concern.

ICU patients receive continuous monitoring and constant observation, using critical care monitors and equipment. Staff members offer emotional support to patients and families, and encourage their questions and feelings.

Intensive Care Unit Visitor Guidelines

Each patient's visitation needs are addressed on an individual basis.
