USA Health Opens Women’s Complex Surgical Care Unit
A Women’s Complex Surgical Care Unit opened this week at the USA Health Children’s & Women’s Hospital in Mobile to better serve the specialized needs of female patients following certain surgeries. The nine-bed unit, consisting fully of private rooms, is a new post-surgical area for women who require a close level of monitoring and observation following OB-GYN and oncology-related surgeries performed at the hospital. Located on the third floor of the women’s tower, the unit includes a new nurse’s station, advanced monitoring capabilities and staff specially trained to care for female patients following complex surgeries. The unit can also accommodate those who have returned for care after discharge. A goal for the unit is to help patients recover from surgery and to ultimately prevent transitions to a higher level of care.
