Our twenty-five bed combined Medical/Surgical Unit provides care for both medical patients and patients hospitalized under any of the specialty surgical services offered at MCDH, such as general surgery, orthopedic surgery, and urologic surgery. In addition, a designated Pediatric Area is available to provide medical and surgical care to infants and children.
An Experienced Team
Our Medical/Surgical area is staffed by registered nurses, licensed vocational nurses, and certified nursing assistants whose diversified experience and expertise combine to provide high quality nursing care.
Long Term Care
15-Bed Skilled Nursing Unit: Fifteen of the Hospital’s acute care Medical/Surgical beds are licensed by the State of California for utilization as skilled nursing beds. Our Swing Bed Program allows patients whose medical condition has stabilized to remain in the Hospital if they still require skilled services. Such services may include physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, respiratory therapy, IV therapy, and/or other skilled nursing services. The Swing Bed program serves the important function of keeping these patients in the local community, close to their families and loved ones.
