Providing critical care when and where it matters most is of the utmost
importance to Frederick Health. Out of 47 hospitals in the state of Maryland,
the ED at Frederick Health Hospital is the seventh busiest. And Frederick
County is the fastest-growing county in Maryland, with significant growth
in those over age 65.
“The planned changes will help prepare the hospital to meet our community’s
growth and changing needs,” said Cheryl Cioffi, DNP, RN, ANP-BC,
FACHE, Senior Vice President, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Nursing
Officer. “When you or a loved one experience a medical emergency,
we want to make sure you have access to the critical care services you
need, right here in Frederick.”
The Critical Care Project will involve three floors in one wing of the
hospital, where the ED is currently located. It includes the following
- Completion of redesign and expansion of the Emergency Department
- Renovation and expansion of the Intensive Care Unit
- Enhancing Interventional Cardiology services
Rendering of Frederick Health Hospital following the completion of the
Critical Care Project.
All three components of the project share a common goal: to make the environment
at Frederick Health Hospital even more comfortable, convenient, and patient-centered.
Most importantly, these enhancements will help Frederick Health Hospital
deliver the best quality care for those who need emergency services.
