Medical Surgical Unit

WCHC understands that most people do not choose to be hospitalized and would prefer to be at home. WCHC will do our best to make sure that your stay is comfortable and to help you return to your home as soon possible.

A new Medical/Surgical Unit was built in 2007, to help assure that your stay is comfortable while you are here. The Medical/Surgical floor features 22 Inpatient beds and 3 beds in our Obstetrical Unit. Our new patient rooms are all private with a large bathroom that features a walk-in shower. WCHC understands that support from family members often allows for a quicker recovery. WCHC wants to not only accommodate the patient but also their families. A family area and daybeds are featured in every room so that family members may stay and feel comfortable and "at home" while they are in our facility. Big windows are featured in every room to allow the patient to view the landscaped exteriors and enjoy the natural sunlight.

WCHC's nursing staff consists of professional registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and certified nursing assistants. They provide 24 hour nursing care for medical and surgical patients of all ages. All of our Nursing Staff are trained in the American Heart Associations' Basic Cardiac Life Support. Our nurses in the Intensive Care Unit, Emergency Room, Obstetrics and Surgery areas are also trained in Advance Cardiac Life Support.

WCHC's newly constructed Medical Surgical Unit also features all the important aspects to meet specialized medical and surgical needs of critically ill and injured patients.

An interdisciplinary team will be working together to provide your care and to prepare you for discharge. Our highly trained staff knows that each patient is unique and will base your patient care on individual physical and emotional needs. During your stay at WCHC, you will receive patient education and information that is important to your quick recovery and future health.

Planning for discharge begins when you are admitted and continues through your hospital stay. We will help you and your family prepare for your discharge time so that your transportation will be available and your return home will be as timely as possible.
