DCH Acute Care Unit Now Open

(Washington, IN) - Daviess Community Hospital is pleased to announce the opening of the DCH Acute Care Unit. Located on the second floor of the hospital, this latest in expansion of services for the organization combines the former Med Surg Unit with the Intensive Care Unit.

The new space offers patients and their loved ones a new level of comfort and care, with sixteen private patient rooms featuring the latest amenities and cutting-edge technology. Careful consideration was taken in the design of the new center, as the DCH staff took an active role in planning for patient accommodations.

Daviess Community Hospital is grateful for the generosity of donors who have already pledged to support the renovations for both the Acute Care Unit as well as, the Emergency Department. They include: Chet & Pat Thompson, Tom and Marsha Boyd, First Federal Bank, Myers LP Gas, Jim and Sue Pearson, Jordan and Ashley Sherman, NASCO Industries, Joe Wagler, Dr. Thomas Waits, Dr. and Mrs. Greg Brown, Nancy Devine, Daviess Community Hospital Auxiliary, Dr. Suresh Lohano, True Scripts Management Services LLC, and to the many additional organizations and individuals who have given to the fundraising campaign, but wish to remain anonymous.

Grant funds and proceeds from the 2022 and 2023 foundation events, including the golf outing, year-end employee appeal, 5k, and the Kentucky Derby event also provided support for this project thus far.

The Foundation Board at Daviess Community Hospital committed to raising $1,000,000.00. They are confident that the goal will be reached within the next several months.

“At Daviess Community Hospital, we understand that healthcare is changing,” remarked Tracy Conroy, CEO. “It is our mission to provide patients with the most compassionate and advanced care in our region. With the support of our community, the newly renovated Acute Care Unit and the upcoming renovation of the Emergency Department will help us achieve just that. We are committed to providing the utmost comfort and convenience to our patients during their hospital experience.”

A blessing and two open houses took place on December 14th and December 15th. The first patient will be admitted to the new unit on Tuesday, December 19th.
