The new Kovalchick Family Intensive Care unit opened in 2017. Each room in this 12-bed unit has a private bathroom, a television, an outside window, blinds for privacy, and close observation of patients from the independent nursing stations outside of the rooms. The unit also has a large consultation area for coordination of care with case managers, specialists and staff. There is an intricate nurse call system that is a major benefit to staff and patients.
The unit also features a dialysis room and a family waiting area.
An intensivist, a physician who specializes in the care of critically ill patients, is available in the unit for direct patient care.
Family members and friends may visit the Kovalchick Family Intensive Care 24/7.
