Critical Care Pavilion
For patients and their family members, a stay in the intensive care unit (ICU) can be a roller coaster ride of emotions. To ease the stress of having a loved one in the ICU and to improve efficiency in care, Spartanburg Medical Center opened the newly renovated Critical Care Pavilion on April 9, 2018.
The Critical Care Pavilion at Spartanburg Medical Center is a 110,000-square-foot space that houses four areas:
- Medical ICU
- Surgical ICU
- Neuro ICU
- Medical-Surgical Unit
Previously, the four ICU areas were located throughout the Spartanburg Medical Center campus. Now, these are consolidated into one area for the convenience of patients, improved clinical teamwork and critical care outcomes. This new facility houses 46 adult critical care beds, 22 medical/surgical beds and has created nearly 30 new jobs.
Completely built by the Spartanburg Medical Center facilities department, the area was designed with comfort and care in mind. Charting stations outside of every room allow nurses to stay close to patients. The critical care rooms are larger to better accommodate visiting family members of ICU patients, state-of-the-art medical equipment, and lifts to assist nurses in moving patients.
The 6th floor will have a state-of-the-art central telemetry monitoring station observing patients throughout the hospital from one designated location.
The large waiting room is filled with natural light, comfortable seating and charging stations. Spaces for sensitive discussions are also available behind privacy screens in the waiting room. The Pavilion has a dedicated parking area for critical care patients and visitors located off Serpentine Drive.
