Medical Specialty Unit

The Medical Unit at Union Hospital is a beautiful, newly structured 24 bed unit, which opened in January 2007. All patient rooms are private with the exception of four, very spacious semi-private rooms. The unit is designed to provide 24-hour care for acutely ill medical patients, primarily adults age 18 and older, in the following categories: medical, oncology, general and geriatrics. The unit is capable of monitoring up to 8 non-critical cardiac patients via cardiac telemetry, transmitted to the master unit in PCU for 24-hour surveillance. Computer documentation is used along with electronic scanning of all medications.

Attractive aspects of working here:

  • All new employees are welcomed to a department of strong quality, hard working and compassionate co-workers
  • Orientation that is not based on a timeframe but rather is individualized to each new employee
  • Pairing with primary and secondary preceptors who complement your personality and provide a teaching style that you learn best from
  • Meetings with preceptors and Unit Manager every two weeks to discuss your progress or needs
  • Self-scheduling done through a new electronic system 
  • Holiday packages are provided along with weekend rotations
  • Strong Charge Nurses without assignments to assist you
  • An ancillary support staff is also available for support

Management style:

Pride is evident in the day-to-day practice of nursing with a strong direction to provide an excellent patient experience. Nursing leadership is strong, fair and supportive while promoting professional growth and development. High quality and accountability are key to successful patient outcomes. Involvement is encouraged in unit committees and councils. Nurses are recognized for their hard work and a job done well.
