Development of the new West Shore facility included a major focus on patient comfort and safety. The hospital features 108 private rooms, allowing patients to feel more relaxed during inpatient care.

Some of the features of the new state-of-the-art West Shore Hospital  include:

  • Noise-reducing materials creating a tranquil environment for patient recovery.
  • Personal entertainment centers - Each room will feature educational videos about patients’ conditions and treatments.
  • Digital White boards  - Similar to a traditional white board; this digital version will display pictures, names and full titles of the staff members serving patients, as well as information about the care patients are receiving.
“The digital white board will give patients and their loved ones up-to-the-minute information on what to expect day in and day out as they recover from a surgical procedure or are being monitored during their stay,”  says Mark Barabas, FACHE, senior vice president of Operations and chief operating officer at West Shore Hospital “This feature will bring peace of mind to patients and families.”
  • Specialized monitoring devices- Devices will fit in the pockets of patients’ hospital gowns and automatically record vital signs, instantly transferring the information to the patients’ electronic medical records.
“Having this sort of technology enables patients to rest without interruptions,” Mark says. “This type of monitoring can also alert staff when patients are having respiratory or other urgent issues so staff can stabilize them quickly.”
