Dedicated Units for High Level, Hands-on Care
Stroke Units are known to reduce hospitalization time, improve outcomes and save lives. So, in 2002, University opened its dedicated five-bed Stroke Unit, the only one of its kind in the area. The unit delivers the comprehensive care stroke patients need, from around-the-clock monitoring by trained neurological nurses, to a multidisciplinary treatment team that makes daily rounds, to early rehabilitative therapy that can reduce or reverse stroke damage.
University's Coronary Care Unit is staffed by trained cardiac clinicians who carefully monitor heart patients with state-of-the-art equipment. And University's hospital-wide wireless telemetry monitoring system allows patients who need heart monitoring to be placed in the most appropriate section of the hospital based on their primary diagnosis.
