Our new decentralized model moves the nurse and services right to the patients bedside in satellite stations and provides access by all users, in a quiet, soothing experience that is reassuring to patients, families, and visitors. The decentralized room provides optimal patient privacy and enhances private family interactions with patient, nurse and physician and other allied team members such as social workers, clerical staff, physiotherapists, dieticians and respiratory therapists.

Our bright, spacious ED has been developed with consideration for privacy, confidentiality, infection control measures and features state-of-the-art technology in equipment (i.e. cardiac monitoring, diagnostic imaging in our trauma room, negative pressure isolation rooms), communication devices (Vocera, nurse call system), and other care delivery processes (pneumatic tube system, Rapid Assessment Zone, and Minor Treatment Area).
