MEDICAL-SURGICAL UNIT
Our Medical-Surgical Unit provides both acute and skilled levels of care. A team of professionals and
support staff provide personalized care for the patient and his/her family while they are in the hospital.
Physicians and nurses collaborate daily on treatment and discharge plans working toward a speedy
recovery.
SPECIALIZED CARE UNIT (SCU)
The four-bed Specialized Care Unit is equipped with sophisticated monitoring systems and staffed with
nurses who are certified in advanced life support and critical care nursing. The Special Care Unit provides
constant monitoring and personalized treatment for patients who are critically ill.
SKILLED/SWING BEDS
Skilled/Swing Beds allow patients who need a short period of skilled nursing or rehabilitation services
following discharge from an acute care setting to stay at New London Hospital, rather than being moved to
an out-of-town nursing facility. Some patients may be transferred from another acute care facility for a
short recovery period prior to returning to their home.
SOCIAL SERVICES
This department provides Social Services to the inpatient population, ambulatory setting, and extended
care residents. Collaborating with the health care team, patients, their families and the community, Social
Services provides a continuity of care that promotes a smooth transition from the hospital to home or elder
care setting.
