Nursing Units

Medical/Surgical Services
Yuma Regional Medical Center medical/surgical units deliver a high level of patient-family centered care by ensuring that nurses spend as much time at the patient's bedside as possible. Each unit is staffed by a director, clinical nurse expert, resource coordinator (also known as a charge nurse), registered nurses, clinical associates, business associates and team associates. These care teams are committed to making frequent visits to patients' rooms to help ensure their comfort and safety.

In addition to caring for general medical/surgical patients, each unit has staff that are competent to care for a particular medical specialty:

Tower 2 is a 36-bed telemetry unit that provides individualized care for adults with diverse chronic and acute conditions that are primarily cardiac-related, but also include neurological, CVAs and pulmonary. We do support a variety of critical non-titrated drips on this unit. There are 36 telemetry available for patients and are monitored by the USR’s on the department.

Tower 3 is a 36-bed unit designed to treat adult and geriatric patients with both acute and chronic conditions Tower 3 is a 36-bed unit designed to treat adult and geriatric patients with both acute and chronic conditions, with sub specialties of oncology and renal failure.

Med West Observation is a 38-bed unit designed to treat adult and geriatric patients with both acute and chronic conditions requiring short term observation by Registered Nurses. The observation stay is intended for short term diagnostic testing and monitoring, which are reasonable to evaluate the patient condition. This is done in order to determine the  need to be admitted to the hospital as a hospital patient or be discharged to go home. Telemetry monitoring is available on the unit.

2 West Medical is a 52-bed med/surg unit that cares for the adult and Stroke population. This is a Flex unit that opens to accommodate the increased census that occurs over our winter period. This department opens in fall and closes in the late spring. The unit has telemetry monitoring attached to 38 beds and has two isolation rooms. An experienced team of Core and Seasonal staff manage this busy unit.
