Assignment of Patient Care Units

  • Planning and design teams with representation from physicians, nurses, direct support care providers, administrators, and patient and family advisors have been regularly meeting for many months.
  • To date, more than 100 individuals have participated in the array of standing and ad-hoc committees, as well as user group teams. These teams have provided tremendous input based upon the evaluation criteria, including enhancing the patient/family experience, optimizing operational efficiencies for clinical care teams, evaluating the necessary associations for spaces and related infrastructure, and considering unique space planning opportunities for our care models.

After full consideration of input by these teams, the final recommendation for assignment of patient care units to specific levels of the J-wing was recently made to the EUH Expansion Program Executive Committee who unanimously approved the recommendation as follows (view a map below):

  • Level 9 –Bone Marrow Transplant
  • Level 8 – Hematology & Medical Oncology
  • Level 7 – Surgical Specialties, including Surgical Oncology, Urology, Gynecology and Gynecology Oncology
  • Level 6 – Solid Organ Transplant (kidney, liver and pancreas)
  • Level 5 (South) – Critical Care
  • Level 5 (North) – Unassigned
  • Level 4 - Under development
  • Level 3 - Under development
  • Level 2 - Food services and retail
  • Level 1 - Anesthesia Pre-op Clinic and Imaging
