Smaller Patient Care Units at New Silver Cross Hospital Designed to Enhance Care for Patients/Family Members
Replacement Hospital Opening Feb. 26, 2012 at I-355 & Route 6 in New Lenox
Joliet, IL (Sept. 21, 2011)--Even before the ground was broken, the leadership team at Silver Cross staff knew that they wanted to design the replacement hospital to provide the best possible care for area patients and their family members while creating a supportive work environment for staff. The Replacement Hospital Care Delivery Team spent many months querying the staff and researching best practices at other new hospitals. The Hospital even performed a few tests of their own including a Time and Motion Study to measure how many steps and how long it took a nurse to perform a simple task on a unit. The end result—smaller 18-bed patient care units in the Silver Cross Replacement Hospital at I-355 and Route 6 in New Lenox.
