Building Better Health: Critical Care Unit expansion project beginsMarch 3, 2017
Our growth at ANMC is not only focused on improving access to care for our people, but also seeks to improve the quality and experience of the care we provide. The ANMC hospital turns 20 years old this fall and over the past several years, our Strategic Access team has been making needed improvements and expansions to the hospital. The latest project is an expansion project of ANMC’s Critical Care Unit (CCU), now underway at the ANMC hospital.
The CCU is located on the second floor of the hospital and is currently 16 rooms. All existing rooms will be updated and refreshed and six additional rooms will be added to the unit. The expansion is being built out over the northwest corner of the ANMC hospital.
The CCU visitor waiting area will be expanded and a courtyard that maximizes natural light will also be added. The Nurses’ Station will also be centralized within the unit for better patient care and coordination between CCU staff.
ANMC has been a Level II Trauma Center since 1999. Providing the highest level of trauma care possible in Alaska, ANMC serves as the referral center for all Tribal health facilities in the state. As a result, our CCU is often times at capacity, or very close, making this upgrade essential.
This project is expected to be complete in 2018. To learn more about the project, please contact Amy York, Senior Construction Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
