    GTU/SCU is a 29 bed Medical/Surgical unit. We have two focuses on GTU and SCU; GTU’s focus is on patients > 60 years who have sustained a trauma and SCU focuses on the relief of suffering that may occur at many points during a disease process. Patients assigned to the Geriatric Trauma Unit are received primarily from the Emergency Center and Trauma & Surgical Intensive Care Unit. The GTU was developed as a result of Best Practice and Research that indicates that a shorter length of stay decreases morbidity and mortality in the elderly hospitalized patient. The SCU provides a quiet, peaceful environment for patients and their loved ones. The nursing staff on SCU are trained to care for patients at the end of life as well as those who will be discharged home or to other facilities.
