A 16-Bed Unit at Ashley County Medical Center
Ashley County Medical Center’s Med/Surg unit is located on the 2nd floor of the hospital. Our 16-bed unit allows us to treat patients from infancy to end-of-life. We treat a large range of diagnoses such as: neonatal jaundice, pneumonia, pancreatitis, bowel obstructions, diverticulitis, CHF, COPD, complex fractures, joint replacements, and other various ailments with failed outpatient treatment. Some outpatient procedures, such as blood transfusions and IV therapy, are conducted on Med/Surg as well. This allows patients to be cared for in a comfortable environment, even for less lengthy stays. Our 16 single rooms allow for individualized, private care. With all stays, we provide multi-disciplinary, family-oriented treatment. We strive for our patients to be satisfied, if not impressed, with their care.
Our caregivers on the medical surgical floor range from RNs and LPNs to CNAs and Ward Clerks. Each staff member provides a unique experience and degree of personal care to address the whole healing experience. Additionally, our staff have over 80 years of combined experience!
A Multidisciplinary Approach to Care
Hospitalists, local physicians, and surgeons care for the patients on this unit. A physician attends patient planning sessions in which dietary, ancillary services, nursing and social work exchange ideas about the patients and family needs. We utilize multidisciplinary planning to ensure each person is where they need to be and receiving the care necessary for positive outcomes.
