Fort HealthCare lives up to its promise of delivering patient-centered care on a daily basis. Modifications made to our facility with this goal in mind are no different. In July, construction was completed on the Med-Surg-Peds (MSP) floor, transforming one hallway into a new Intensive Care Unit (ICU). The new ICU location replaces the existing patient care rooms that were provided on the first floor, mezzanine level, across from the Great Expectations Birthing Center.

Pam Kuehl supported the decision to update the ICU, “Considering that patient census is not where it used to be, we needed to take a look at the market today and see what changes would make the most sense. For us, utilizing existing space on the MSP floor was a cost-efficient solution with a lot of benefits. The space on MSP gives us existing modern patient rooms to work with, the location is near all the patient services that would be needed, it is more efficient for physicians, staff, scheduling, and supplies; overall it streamlines our workflow.  The new ICU is also near to a comfortable guest waiting area so families can be close to their loved ones while they are receiving care.”

Bringing the ICU to our already top-quality MSP and Center for Joint Replacement floor is another way we continue to deliver exceptional patient care and great customer service.
