The Answer Our Community Needs
To ensure the proper medical care, we will increase our staff to ensure full-time coverage by intensivists—specially trained physicians experienced in treating critical-care patients.
AS A RESULT OF THOMPSON’S ICU EXPANSION, EACH YEAR:
50-65 additional ICU patients will be admitted to and treated at F.F. Thompson, close to home, rather than transferred to a Rochester hospital.
Thompson will increase our staff to ensure full-time coverage by intensivists–specially trained physicians experienced in treating critical-care patients.
100-130 patients can be transferred to Thompson Hospital’s ICU from hospitals to our east and south, as Thompson will be part of the UR Medicine Transfer Center.
100-135 additional surgical and cardiac patients who require more intensive care will be cared for at Thompson Hospital’s ICU rather than needing to be referred to Rochester. This in turn will help keep care local.
