  • 7 Southwest — The 28-bed medical unit opened Monday, Oct. 31.
  • 3 North Short Stay Medical Unit — The 28-bed unit opened Tuesday, Nov. 1.

    • Providing a specially trained staff experienced with caring for patients.
    • Ensuring that any tests necessary for discharge are completed as quickly as possible.
    • Anticipating patient and physician needs by initiating discharge planning and ensuring the patient's stay does not exceed 48 hours.
  • Both 7 Southwest and the 3 North Short Stay units will have patient telemonitoring and will be observed from the central monitoring center.
