3 South encompasses two small units on one floor. Our intermediate care unit is an 8-bed unit which cares for acutely ill patients who require more frequent monitoring than a telemetry floor but no longer require the care of an intensive care unit. Our observation unit is a 10-bed unit that cares for patients admitted through the emergency department who have an anticipated discharge within 24 - 48 hours of admission.
We are a multidisciplinary medical surgical unit with monitoring capabilities for 12 beds. 3 South is the primary nursing unit for renal transplant surgery patients and living donors.
