The Medical Day Hospital first opened in 2005 as an alternative to hospitalization for patients who did not require 24 hours of medical/nursing supervision but with care needs that could not be met by any other existing program within the hospital or within the community. The Medical Day Hospital started with 3 treatment spaces on a medical inpatient unit with the initial goal of helping patients and families avoid prolonged hospitalizations.
Today, the Medical Day Hospital has 14 treatment spaces open 7 days/week. We have since added other care activities and expertise to provide comprehensive day hospital services while preventing hospitalizations and emergency department visits.
On average, the day hospital provides care to 15-20 patients per day.
