Employees of Garrett Regional Medical Center’s third floor nursing and clinical staff check out the progress in the third floor of the new wing construction area. The third floor, medical/surgical wing will open with six new private patient rooms, each with its own shower, a state of the art bariatric room and a new nurse’s station. As the newly completed patient rooms are opened, existing third floor patient rooms will be taken off-line in phases and renovated until all rooms are completed increasing the number of private rooms available to patients. The new third floor wing is expected to open for patient use by early this summer.
The Accreditation Committee of the College of American Pathologists (CAP) has awarded accreditation to Garrett Regional Medical Center Hospital Laboratory, based on results of a recent on-site inspection as part of the CAP’s Accreditation Programs. This is the first time in the history of the hospital that this accreditation has been established for the medical center.
Garrett Regional Medical Center recently celebrated the completion of a newly relocated and renovated Subacute Rehabilitation Unit with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. Joined by many community members, press representatives and political figures, the Hospital opened the new unit for tours and refreshments in February. Visitors to the unit were openly impressed with the spacious, attractive rooms designed for patient care and comfort. The rooms in the new unit boast a warm home-like atmosphere with modern amenities, a physical therapy room, and a patient spa that includes salon services.
Garrett Regional Medical Center has recently upgraded its technology as part of an ongoing effort to ensure best practices in providing state-of-the-art care for the Garrett Region. The different technology purchases impact patient care in the areas of radiographic imaging, emergency care, surgical and anesthesia services as well in the critical care areas.
