The focus of the 3 West nurse is to provide strong compassionate care to our oncology patients, and to provide specialized care to our bariatric, gastroenterology, urology, vascular, women’s health, and other medical patients in a healing environment. These patients are admitted as inpatients, outpatients, or observation patients and are predominantly adults, though some older pediatric patients may be admitted to the unit based on their care needs and in consultation with the pediatric medical staff. Our 3 West staff demonstrate a strong work ethic based in teamwork, respect, and the desire to provide a higher level of culturally competent care to our patients.
