Lake Regional Health System is pleased to announce its Intensive Care Unit (ICU) has reopened in its newly renovated space.
The ICU remodel includes new nursing stations, Nurse Call system, lighting, ceiling tiles, flooring, paint and trim, electrical outlets and switches, and rebuilt medical gas system ports. The ICU is located on the first floor of the hospital.
Upgrades to Lake Regional’s ICU were paid for, in part, from financial donations made through the health system’s Greatest Need Campaign. The campaign was created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the community’s desire to support the health system.
“The ICU plays an important role in providing critical care to patients, and it has been even more on the forefront as we treat patients during the COVID pandemic,” said Kevin McRoberts, FACHE, Lake Regional executive vice president and chief operating officer. “I am so proud of our team at Lake Regional because we were able to complete these needed updates without disrupting patient care. We are all thankful to have a renovated ICU that will allow us to better serve our patients.”
Lake Regional is grateful for the outpouring of community support they received during their Greatest Need Campaign. The campaign raised $72,546. In addition to paying for ICU renovations, funds from the campaign also went towards purchasing personal protective equipment.
