Inpatient Care

Franklin Memorial Hospital inpatients receive expert care from a multidisciplinary team that includes doctors, surgeons, nurse practitioners, nurses, nursing and medical students, pharmacists, physical therapists, respiratory therapists, care managers, nursing aides, dietitians and other specialists. Our hospital-based registered nurses hold advanced cardiac certifications that require years of specialty clinical practice, continuing education and rigorous exams.

Hospitalists oversee each patient's care care from admission through discharge. Hospitalists are specially-trained physicians who care for patients during a hospital stay. The hospitalist staff remains in contact with each patient’s primary care provider, sending regular updates and asking for additional information as needed.

Care team members meet every morning to discuss discharge plans and ensure that patients have the services they need when they leave our hospital. A care manager arranges for these services which may include home care visits, rehabilitation in nursing care facilities, outpatient physical therapy, food pantry services and other social services.

Intensive Care

Our intensive care unit (ICU) is located on the third floor of the hospital. The ICU team provides advanced medical care and observation to people in in critical/unstable condition (heart attack, respiratory failure, surgical complications). These acutely ill patients require constant observation and intensive nursing care. Our specially-trained nurses use state-of-the-art life support devices and evidence-based medicine to achieve the best possible health outcomes for ICU patients.
