Medical Surgical Unit (Med/Surg)

The medical surgical nursing staff provides caring, individualized attention to all patients who are hospitalized for illness, surgery or testing and observation. Our nursing staff works together with the physicians, pharmacists and physical, occupational, speech and respiratory therapists to provide quality care to each patient.

Preoperative and postoperative nursing care is provided for patients who are undergoing abdominal surgery such as appendectomy, cholecystectomy (gallbladder removal), hysterectomy, colon surgery, and hernia surgery. Patients having orthopedic surgery including total hip and knee replacements, rotator cuff repairs, and carpal tunnel surgery will also recieve preoperative and postoperative care

Our medical surgical unit accommodates patients of all ages. We offer semi-private and private rooms – and one room especially for children. Because of our smaller size, the patients get more individualized attention from the nursing staff. 

General visiting hours are 11:00am-8:00pm and we recommend that visitors be limited to 2 at a time. Please respect the privacy of other patients while visiting your friends and family.

There are special times when family members are encouraged to stay; we recommend that a parent stays with a child who is a patient at all times. We bring in a recliner or bed and allow parents to order from the hospital food menu while staying in the hospital.

If a patient is in isolation, visitors will be given specific instructions to visit the patient.
