It took nearly two years, but after overcoming several obstacles created by the pandemic, the Granby Hospital at last unveiled its latest addition: a brand new intensive care unit.
The state-of-the-art upgrade from the previous iteration features eight beds, sophisticated technology to make it easier for technicians, professionals, nurses and doctors, and more privacy options for families visiting people in the ICU.
According to a press release, the unit is an 1,158 square metre expansion located above the emergency room in the North wing of the hospital. The project provides more functionality, and safe spaces for users and staff. It also improves infection prevention and control.
