Inpatient Surgical Care
Greenwich Hospital provides highly personalized and attentive care in its 48-bed surgical inpatient unit. Patient rooms are comfortably furnished to accommodate overnight visitors if a family member wishes to remain with a patient. Each room has wireless Internet, telephone and TV service. Newspapers and magazines are available for delivery as well.
When pain is well controlled, patients are better able to participate in important activities such as walking, deep breathing exercises and physical therapy and rehabilitation. All surgery patients are continually assessed to ensure they remain comfortable.
The Integrative Medicine Program at Greenwich Hospital sponsors The Healing Touch Program, a holistic, energy-based therapy that complements patient care. Trained Healing Touch volunteers use soothing techniques to help patients relax and facilitate healing. This service can be arranged through staff on the inpatient surgical floor or during the preadmission interview.
Hospital chaplains provide a spiritual presence in keeping with the beliefs or religious practices of patients and their families. Chaplains are available for counsel, prayer and support for those in need. The Spiritual Care Department will also assist in contacting clergy from the community.
