Hospital to Unveil New, Intensive and Intermediate Care Unit Monday, Jan. 30


1/24/2017
Sheboygan – HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital will unveil its new, Intensive and Intermediate Care Unit (ICU/IMCU) to the public and local media during an open house and ribbon-cutting event on Monday, Jan. 30.
 
In 2015, HSHS St. Nicholas Foundation, the philanthropic arm of HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital, received a $1 million donation from the Acuity Charitable Foundation to benefit the hospital’s 125th Anniversary Capital Progress Campaign. This donation funded the development of the new, Acuity Intensive Care and Intermediate Care Unit (ICU/IMCU) at HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital. It is located on the 5th floor of the hospital and replaces the former ICU/IMCU on the 2nd floor.
 
Features of the Acuity ICU/IMCU include:
  • Larger patient rooms with private bathrooms.
  • Nurse stations positioned at each ICU patient room.
  • Private consult rooms for physicians and family members.
  • A family waiting area within the unit to keep family and visitors close to their loved ones.
  • Enhanced infection prevention measures to decrease the risk of spreading illnesses.
 
“The Acuity ICU/IMCU is designed to better meet the needs of our patients, their loved ones and our expert, medical staff,” said Andy Bagnall, President and CEO at HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital. “It allows us to better serve our patients today and in the future as we strive to keep high-quality health care close to home and accessible for all.”
 
The open house will feature tours, appetizers and refreshments. Leaders from HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital and Acuity, as well as members of the Sheboygan Area Chamber of Commerce will also be on hand. The community and members of the local media are encouraged to attend.
