Palmyra unveils Critical Care Unit

Albany- When you need critical care, you want to know that doctors and nurses are working in the finest facilities.

Palmyra Medical Centers just completed phase one of its critical care unit upgrade. The $10 million project started 18 months ago and was finished two months early. This renovated area houses both the Critical Care Unit and the Surgical Intensive Unit and includes $1.2 million in new state-of-the-art equipment.

"So it provides for the critically ill patient to be able to maneuver in the room," said Allison Mulholland, Director of the Critical Care Unit. "As technology has changed, we needed a lot more space and now we're able to provide that."

The next two phases of the project will be the expansion of the Dialysis Unit, Outpatient Diagnostics Center and the Admission and Discharge Unit.
