New Progressive Care Unit Build-Out
Expanding to Meet the Needs of a Changing Population
Providence St. Joseph Hospital is embarking on a $16 million expansion of a new Progressive Care Unit (PCU). In order to meet an aging community’s rapidly expanding need for our services, the hospital is prioritizing an initiative to add 20 new beds that offer a high level of patient care.
With the addition of the PCU, we can quickly move patients to an appropriate level of care. “A lot of our patients are elderly and are aging. We should be able to serve them,” explains Gemma Seidl, RN, MSN, MPH, PHN, executive director of critical care, telemetry and medical-surgical services. “Whenever there is an available bed, the patient will be admitted quickly, so they will not be waiting in the ER.”
Providence St. Joseph Hospital Foundation has a philanthropic goal of $12 million over the next three years to aid in the completion of the 12,600-square-foot Progressive Care Unit. Should we face another pandemic or natural disaster at nearby Disneyland, The Honda Center or Angel Stadium, Providence St. Joseph will be better prepared to care for our Dear Neighbor.
