Advanced Technology and Care
At Hutchinson Regional Medical Center, our uniquely designed Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is a circular 25,000 square-foot extension of the main hospital, offering the most advanced medical technology and impressive patient comfort and care.
Designed and Equipped for Advanced Care
- The ICU’s round design ensures nurses have a clear line-of-sight to patients and centrally positions nursing stations so staff members can better monitor and document patient conditions.
- An advanced nurse call system enables information sharing across multiple systems, assisting in reduced errors and improved patient care.
- A new Telemetry system allows physicians to remotely view patients’ heart rhythms.
- Rooms feature over-the-head booms, rather than lines coming out of the wall for cables and tubing, allowing nurses to better access patients.
Visiting the ICU
You may visit friends and loved ones in the ICU 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We ask that you respect the privacy of other patients and family members by stepping out to the waiting area during shift change reporting times from 6:30 a.m. to 8 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Visitors may return to the patient’s room immediately following the completion of reports.
The Most Advanced MRI Technology in South Central Kansas
We continue to invest in technology for greater patient care. Our $2 million Siemens Magnetom Aera 48 Coil 1.5 Tesla MRI scanner is capable of producing incredibly high-resolution images of internal organs — particularly the heart, intestines, and prostate — aiding in accurate diagnosis and treatment.
