Inpatient Medical/Surgical Unit

Whether you develop pneumonia while vacationing here or need post-surgery care, Estes Park Health takes care of you in the Inpatient Medical/Surgical Unit. “Med/Surg,” as it’s commonly referred to, is the 15-bed unit for patients requiring overnight hospital stays, but not ICU stays.

This unit offers a high quality of attentive care from local nurses. Additionally, Med/Surg is staffed by a dedicated team of hospitalist physicians from a well-known partner organization that specializes in improving efficiencies and care at smaller or rural hospitals. Together, this capable Med/Surg team coordinates care with patients’ primary care doctors to ensure healthy recoveries.

Technology also plays a vital role in the superior care in Med/Surg. Wireless “smart” pumps reduce medication errors and improve workflow in the unit. The latest in telemetry also allows the staff to closely monitor patient vital signs, quickly identify potential problems and diagnose more quickly, particularly regarding cardiac events.

Transitional Care

The Estes Park Health Transitional Care Unit (TCU) provides care for patients who don’t need a high level of care from the hospital, but who need skilled nursing services before going home. Patients who are admitted to Estes Park Health can convert to transitional care and remain in the same room and bed. Patients who are at another facility but need additional care, can transfer to this unit to receive care near home.
