Warner Hospital Relocating Pharmacy, Discontinuing ICU

The space at Warner Hospital that is now the ICU will soon become the pharmacy.


CEO Paul Skowron tells Regional Radio News, the hospital has had only two ICU patients in the last two years and have two ICU units. Because of that, they will discontinue the service and utilize the space for the pharmacy.



Hospital administration will have to submit their intentions and plans to the State for review and approval. Skowron anticipates that happening towards the end of the summer and the transition process in their facility taking a couple of months.



The government has passed down a regulation that hospitals have to adjust their pharmacies and Skowron indicates this actually helps the hospital in that effort that has to be complete by December 31 of this year.



What happens to the current pharmacy is still being decided on.
