Nursing

Our nursing department is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

We provide outpatient, emergency, observation, and inpatient care. The nurse to patient ratio is kept low to ensure the staff can provide the quality of nursing care each patient needs. We have nurses skilled in emergency and acute care. We are currently working to meet benchmark standards in medication safety, fall prevention, acute myocardial infarction care, pneumonia care, and congestive heart failure care. The nursing department strives to go the extra mile in providing care to return patients to their optimum level of health.
