All healthcare providers will introduce themselves and inform you of their role in your care. Please ask for their names if introductions are not made.

Nursing Staff

We use a patient-focused care approach. A skilled group of registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, patient care technicians and assistants join with other healthcare professionals to provide you with the most comprehensive care available.

Private Physicians

Your physician, who has primary responsibility for your care, carefully directs your treatment plan. Other members of the staff work under his/her supervision to give you comprehensive care as well as therapeutic and diagnostic support. Your physician also may enlist the expertise of specialists on staff or an immediately available house doctor.

Inpatient Team

You may be cared for by a member of our Inpatient Team. This team may care for you only during your hospitalization. They work directly with your family physician to provide you with the highest quality medical care.
