Our goal at West Chester Hospital is to provide a pleasant and healing environment for all who enter, maximizing efficiency, safety and convenience. Our family-centered care means that you and your family won’t have long waits to be seen, won’t get lost navigating a confusing floor plan, and will be made as comfortable as if you were staying at a hotel. Just a few of the amenities we provide include:
- Large, private rooms that are fully-equipped so that patients won’t have to move to a new room, even if their level of care changes.
- Epic electronic patient tracking system, providing real-time information about patients as they move throughout the hospital, allowing the family to keep up-to-date on where their loved one is and how they are progressing.
- Bedside registration in the Emergency Department, so we can get a patient in and start treatment as soon as possible rather than wasting time in a busy waiting room.
Private, spacious rooms
West Chester Hospital has 186 patient rooms, all of which are private. Every room has a private restroom with a walk-in shower, fold-out sleeper-sofas for overnight guests, large, flat-panel televisions with cable, large windows to let in natural light, and soft, soothing color schemes that help you relax.
Unlike many hospitals that have a single nurse station on each floor, we designed and built a nurse mini-station for every two rooms. This allows your nurse to focus more time and energy on the patients, ensures a quicker response time in case of emergencies, and gives you the extra assurance that you won’t be left alone for long periods of time while the nurse is busy elsewhere.
Finally, our patient beds are the latest in medical equipment – known as “smart beds,” these are more than just a comfortable place to sleep. The Hill-Rom VersaCare® mattresses redistribute air pressure to prevent bed sores, assist nurses in turning patients, communicate electronically with the Navicare patient tracking system, and notify nurses when a patient needs help.
