Upcoming Projects That Need Your Help
Sheridan Memorial Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU) provides specialty care for critically ill patients with constant, around-the-clock monitoring and attention. These patients are often at a much higher risk for complications.
The addition of more ICU space at Sheridan Memorial Hospital will raise the standard for critical care in our region, save lives and strengthen our healthcare community.
Sheridan Memorial Hospital’s ICU was originally built in 1954 and remodeled in 1974, serving the residents of the Sheridan community and region. Now 60 years later, the community’s population has grown substantially. Added rooms and space are essential to improve every facet of patient care including clinical requirements, updated equipment and additional area for families. Sheridan Memorial Hospital’s ultimate goal remains focused on improved health outcomes and greater overall satisfaction for patients and their families.
The Transitional Care Unit was opened in 2005 and gained substantial support from the hospital Foundation. The purpose of the TCU is to provide an extended stay to patients who need a few extra days of transition before returning to their home. These are typically surgical patients that need additional care, with a rehabilitation focus. A multidisciplinary team works together to provide, physical therapy, occupational therapy, recreation and social support in order to ease the transition for these patients to be self-sufficient upon their return home. This is another way that Sheridan Memorial Hospital focuses on the needs of our patients.
This project involves renovation and repurposing of 3rd floor existing office space back to patient care. The number of patients utilizing the TCU has outgrown its current space. TCU patients require a transitional level of care and rehabilitation services to improve their healthcare outcomes. They receive dedicated physical, occupational, and speech therapies as required and decreases readmissions.
