The donation will fund the development of the new Acuity Intensive Care and Intermediate Care Unit (ICU/IMCU) at HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital. The announcement was made today by Andy Bagnall, President & CEO, HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital and Ben Salzmann, President & CEO, Acuity.
“Acuity has been a longstanding supporter of facilities, programs, and initiatives that provide needed healthcare services in the community and advance the level of care that patients of all ages can receive,” said Ben Salzmann, Acuity President and CEO. “We are proud to help St. Nicholas Hospital expand its intensive and intermediate care capabilities.”
The new Acuity ICU/IMCU is part of a large renovation project at the hospital that also includes a redesign of the operating rooms. “HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital is committed to serving the needs of its community. The redesign of these areas will allow us to serve the vital needs of our patients today and in the future as we strive to keep care close to home and accessible for all,” said Bagnall. “HSHS St. Nicholas has been blessed by the generosity of the Acuity Charitable Foundation and major donors in this community who support the care we provide. ”
Currently, the ICU is on the hospital’s 2nd floor, but will be relocated to 5th floor. The new ACUITY ICU/IMCU will serve the critical care needs of our patients as the severity of illnesses becomes more acute and our patient population ages. The redesign of the operating rooms will provide a new high-tech environment with modern efficiencies for our surgeons to perform increasingly complex surgical procedures including spine and joint replacements.
