Manchester (CT) Memorial Hospital to get new intensive care unit
Hartford Courant, April 17, 2008
Manchester (CT) Memorial Hospital will be getting a new intensive care unit, a 17,500-square-foot facility that will include 12 beds in private rooms and 10 beds in private "step-down" units for patients who need less monitoring. The "step-downs" can be switched to intensive care units if the need arises, according to hospital officials. The private rooms will offer post-operative patients a clean environment that promotes a decrease in the spread of hospital-acquired infections and better wound healing, officials added.
