The new unit increases the total ICU beds to 28 at the hospital.
North Suburban Medical Center has opened a brand new state–of–the–art Intensive Care Unit, marking the completion of construction project that started in 2017. The new unit will have 12 all private rooms with private bathrooms equipped with brand new equipment designed to carefor the hospital's sickest patients.
“ It is incredibly exciting to see the completion of this project and to know that we are expanding and adding vital services to serve our community,” said Daphne David, president and CEO of North Suburban Medical Center. “It truly marks a commitment to serve everyone in our community and paves the way for us to grow the services for the people we serve.”
Built with efficiency in mind
The new ICU is strategically located next to the Emergency Department and Radiology and Imaging Departments to ensure that patients receive any radiology or Cath lab services quickly and can be easily transitioned from the Emergency Department for intensive care.
Built with the future in mind
The ICU was constructed on a vacant piece of land directly behind the Emergency Department and additional floors can be added over time, which may potentially mark the eventual creation of a larger hospital tower for North Suburban.
Expanding a robust intensive care program
This new ICU adds to the number of intensive care beds and thus, increases the number of patients that can be served. It is not areplacement of the existing ICU, but an extension of the operations. The current ICU at North Suburban Medical Center will continue to operate and see patients. Patients will flex between the two ICU spaces as they progress through their care. The new ICU addition brings the total ICU beds to 28 at North Suburban ensuring adequate space to fulfill the needs of the growing community in the North Metro Denver area.
The ICU will begin seeing patients on Thursday, January 24, 2019.
