The beds in the Medical ICU (MICU) on 9C will temporarily move to 15B during the course of the summer to accommodate the renovation of 9C. The existing MICU will be closed from mid-July to the end of the calendar year. Gynecology patients cared for on 15AB will be accommodated on 15A and other surgical patients will be accommodated on other surgical units within the Tower.
MICU renovations are slated to be completed in the beginning of 2004, resulting in a modern MICU pod and waiting areas. The renovations will be similar to those of Tower 4B, which opened in November 2002. Look for more updates in future issues of BWH Bulletin and Medical Staff News.
