Relaxing, pleasant earth tones reinforce the warm and homelike feel. And, just as you have complete freedom to come and go in your own home, so it is with our unit. Visitors are welcome 24 hours a day. Our unit offers 12 beautiful, private rooms that are equipped with a recliner and a sleeper sofa for overnight guests.
Our unit can be found by taking elevator K to the 5th floor of the Decio Pavilion.
To enhance personalized care for our patients, bedside call buttons ring directly to our nurses’ cell phones. Bedside computers allow our doctors and nurses to review and make updates to our patients’ records instantly. Each room has a communication whiteboard to help keep our patients and their family informed.
Adding to the relaxing ambience of both the patient rooms and the entire unit is a unique TV system that displays beautiful nature scenes accompanied by classical music. This feature is optional in the patient rooms.
To make visits easy and comfortable, we have paid special attention to the needs of family members. We encourage family visits and support during a hospitalization. Each patient room is very spacious and offers a separate seating area and TV for family and guests. Sofas fold out to accommodate an overnight stay.
A convenient family waiting room on the unit offers floor-to-ceiling windows with stunning views of our community.
We offer open visiting hours, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. One family member is welcome to spend the night in the patient’s room.
