Community Westview Hospital prides itself on providing holistic, patient-centered health care to each of our patients. We also want you to be well informed about your options for medical care. Our staff is available to answer any questions or concerns you may have with compassion.
Progressive Care Unit
The progressive care unit is often used to bridge the gap between intensive care units and medical-surgical units, with the goal of providing cost-effective, high-quality, safe care. Although PCUs today may seem to provide care for a wide variety of patients, these patients do share certain typical features: they require a high intensity of nursing care and/or a high level of surveillance. The patient ratio for our PCU is 3:1. Characteristics of progressive care patients include: a decreased risk of life-threatening event, a decreased need for invasive monitoring, increased stability, and an increased ability to participate in their care.
Medical/Surgical Nursing Unit
Community Westview Hospital is a unique provider of a special kind of health care. In simplest terms, our nursing staff views you as a unique person with unique needs. Our nurses have been trained in the osteopathic philosophy of care, which addresses the whole person and treats the root cause of illness. Your diagnosis, care and treatment reflect this philosophy. Private patient rooms overlooking landscaped courtyards and wooded views provide a serene setting for healing. Hospital volunteers also serve as patient representatives to address any patient concerns.
