Observation Unit Expansion
On August 1st, the OHSU Emergency Department cut the ribbon on a new 8-bed expansion to the ED Observation Unit, located on 6B. Staffed by an outstanding team of ED Advanced Practice Providers and supervised by ED Attending MDs, the goal of this unit is to continue observation care for patients admitted through the emergency department. This, in turn, will keep hospital beds available for inpatients, and improve patient care and patient flow for both the emergency department and OHSU as a whole.
