Patient- And Family-Centered Care
We encourage visiting, but keep in mind the patient's need for rest, quiet and privacy. Please consider 2-3 visitors at a time. If you have a cold or the flu, please do not visit. Children of any age may visit with supervision.
Patients and families are encouraged to take part in our daily multidisciplinary team rounding to support patient care goals.
In 2012, we opened a new state-of-the-art ICU with larger patient rooms and dedicated family space.
