The Acuity Intensive Care and Intermediate Care Unit (ICU/IMCU) at HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital in Sheboygan is now available to patients following a dedication ceremony on January 30. The unit was made possible by a $1 million donation from the Acuity Charitable Foundation.
“Acuity is a proud and longstanding supporter of facilities, programs, and initiatives that provide needed healthcare services in the community,” said Ben Salzmann, Acuity President and CEO. “We are pleased to help St. Nicholas Hospital expand its intensive and intermediate care capabilities and advance the level of care that patients of all ages can receive.”
The Acuity ICU/IMCU is part of a large renovation project at the hospital that also includes a redesign of the operating rooms. The new unit is able to serve the critical care needs of patients as the severity of illnesses becomes more acute and the patient population ages. The redesign of operating rooms provides a new high-tech environment with modern efficiencies for surgeons to perform increasingly complex procedures.
“The Acuity ICU/IMCU is designed to better meet the needs of our patients, their loved ones, and our expert medical staff,” said Andy Bagnall, President and CEO at HSHS St. Nicholas Hospital. “It allows us to better serve our patients today and in the future as we strive to keep high-quality health care close to home and accessible for all.”
