The Women’s Care Unit is a 20-bed unit that provides Gyn, Surgical, and Antepartum care for adolescent, adult, and geriatric women and also serves as a med/surg overflow. This all-private room unit cares for the post-surgical patient following vaginal and abdominal hysterectomy, bladder repairs, laprascopic procedures, plastics, mastectomies/breast reconstruction, and women with medical-surgical complications. The Women’s Care Unit also specializes in providing care to long-term high-risk antepartum patients, who sometimes spend weeks or months as an inpatient until the time of delivery. The all-female staff provides compassionate care to patients who have experienced a fetal loss or are placing a baby for adoption. Due to its small size and highly tenured staff, this unit has a cohesive, physician-nurse partnership that provides safe, exceptional care to its patients.
