Health News You Can Use: Saint Luke's East Adds New Observation Unit

January 27, 2021

Saint Luke’s Health System is constantly looking at ways to innovate patient care—whether it’s with leading-edge technology, state-of-the-art treatments, or new research. Amid the pandemic, hospitals across the metro and across the country have become increasingly full, leading to longer wait times and limited space everywhere.

With that in mind, Saint Luke’s is opening a 24-bed medical observation unit at Saint Luke’s East Hospital that will utilize new, virtual technology to help treat patients and cut down on wait times. We talk with Susie Krug, Chief Nursing Officer at Saint Luke’s East Hospital, about Saint Luke's new observation rooms and how they will benefit patients.
