Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital offers a variety of services including intensive
care, medical/surgical, skilled nursing (SWING) and hospice.
The six-bed Critical Care Unit -- equipped with state-of-the-art cardiac
and hemodynamic monitoring -- cares for patients requiring critical care intervention
for acute or potentially life-threatening ailments and surgical recoveries in private
rooms. We offer families compassion and condition updates during their difficult
situations. Our nursing staff strives to provide the highest quality care possible
through ongoing education and training.
The Medical/Surgical Department is a 34-bed general medical, surgical and
telemetry unit that provides comprehensive biopsychosocial nursing to patients requiring
general medical, pre- and post-operative care, urology, cardiac and pediatric
care. Department nurses provide exceptional care to infants, children, adolescents,
adults and seniors.
An integral part of the Hospital is the Skilled Nursing (SWING) bed program
-- a family- and patient-focused area that strives to restore residents to their
maximum level of functioning following their hospital stay.
Residents admitted to the SWING program meet certain Medicare criteria with needs
such as IV antibiotics, diabetes education, medication regulation or pain control.
Physical, occupational and speech therapies are available to help residents who
have suffered a stroke, are recovering from surgery or suffer from chronic obstructive
pulmonary disease (COPD). Nursing care is provided 24/7 by RNs, LPNs and CNAs. An
activity director involves residents in activities, crafts and special meals. The
goal of the SWING program is to get residents back to their pre-hospitalization
level of activity.
The Hospital also offers a Hospice Room to provide support and care for patients
in the final phase of a terminal disease. Our goal is to help the patient live as
fully and as comfortably as possible. The Hospice Room promotes family-centered
care and personalized services for the patient and loved ones.
