6PST opens new unit May 6

Effective Wednesday, May 6, the N.C. Memorial Hospital is opening a new 18-bed surgical unit called 6 Patient Support Tower (6PST) in the former executive offices.

Ultimately the unit will be an 18-bed Intermediate Surgical Care Unit with cardiac monitoring and telemetry capability.  Initially, however, 6PST will provide care for Urology and Vascular Surgery patients while their 19-bed home unit (5 West) undergoes renovations expected to take approximately nine months.
