Not just private rooms...identical private rooms
An important feature of the new Elmhurst Memorial Hospital is the inclusion of all private inpatient suites. This is a growing trend in healthcare that we are pleased to offer to our patients.
All of our inpatients will stay in private suites complete with a restroom, shower and ample space for family and friends. With amenities like internet access, room-by-room temperature controls and custom-cooked meals, we have focused on creating a "home away from home."
While each patient will receive individualized care, we've gone a step further and designed the inpatient suites around principles of standardization. They will all be oriented in teh same direction as opposed to mirror images of each other. This promotes safety and efficiency by allowing caregivers to be able to walk into any room and immediately know where supplies, hookup and other key features are located.
