Hospital to mark opening of new ICU with ribbon cutting, Oct. 12

Submitted by BG CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

Wood County Hospital (WCH) will be hosting an introduction and ribbon cutting ceremony, open to the public, for the new Intensive Care Unit at the hospital Wednesday, Oct. 12 from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Mayor Richard Edwards will be in attendance and will assist with the ribbon cutting. There will be refreshments and tours of the new patient rooms as well as a meet and greet with staff. Guests are asked to enter through the main entrance to the hospital and will be directed to the second floor ICU. The event is brought to you by Wood County Hospital and the Bowling Green Chamber of Commerce.

The new Intensive Care Unit at Wood County Hospital will have ten new and larger rooms with technology and infrastructure enhancements that allow for advanced treatment options.

Sue Brezina, MSN RN, is the Director of the ICU and has spent her entire 35-year nursing career at Wood County Hospital. “The physical improvements of the new ICU will provide a patient care area that’s more conducive to safe, efficient, family-centered care.” WCH recognizes the importance of family support and family can mean different things to different people. All loved ones will be welcome in the new ICU. The visitation policy will also allow for family and support people to be involved in the patient’s care and will promote education, understanding, and preparedness for discharge.

The new rooms also offer more comfort for visitors. There will be sleeping sofas in each room for loved ones to stay bedside during the patient’s stay.
