SRC opens behavioral care area
Hospital staff were invited to a May 4 open house at the renovated behavioral care area in the Saint Raphael Campus Emergency Department. The area, for patients with psychiatric concerns, is an expansion of the previous space from two, double-bed rooms to five private rooms and a separate nurse's station. This new unit will include specially trained staff and standardize care to the level currently offered in the Crisis Intervention Unit on the York Street Campus. Among those at the open house were (l - r): Jeffrey Kovar, MD; Marc Shapiro, MD, medical director, ED; Suki Hood, ER technician; Lisa Pannella, RN; Rebecca Stanley, RN, patient service manager, Crisis Intervention Unit; Mark Sevilla, RN, director, Emergency Services; Craig Smith, social worker; and Matthew Goldenberg, MD, medical director, Psychiatric Emergency Services.
