Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center recently unveiled a new surgical intensive care unit at a ribbon cutting ceremony in late November.
The 16-bed unit will accommodate trauma patients and surgical patients who require intensive care. Each room accomodates one patient, as well as the patient's family and are equipped with state-of-the-art monitoring technology.
“We have responded to patients’ needs by providing greater access to surgical care,” said Good Samaritan’s Chair of Surgery John Francfort.
Good Sam is working toward a planned 2013 American College of Surgeons site visit and review. If verified, the hospital will be among the first in New York to be named an ACS-Committee on Trauma Level II Trauma Center.
