- About Us
In an effort to provide better access for families and to reduce overcrowding in the critical care waiting areas, there are now six scheduled visitation times daily. The patient’s condition will determine any adjustments made to the visiting schedule. CCU visitors must be at least 12 years old. No more than two visitors should be in the patient’s room at any given time.
Visiting hours are:
4 - 6 a.m., 8:30 - 9 a.m., 10:30 - 11:30 a.m., 1:30 - 2 p.m., 4:30 - 5:30 p.m., 8 - 9 p.m.
The Wiregrass chapter of the Society of Hospital Medicine (SHM) has received the “Silver Ribbon” award for the 2015 calendar year.
The membership of the Wiregrass SHM chapter consists primarily of SAMC hospitalists and hospitalist physician’s assistants. The award marks the culmination of a yearlong effort by the Wiregrass SHM chapter to educate the public regarding hospital medicine and the role of hospitalists in the acute care setting, while seeking to improve the quality of inpatient care.
“Winning the award has been a wonderful, encouraging honor, especially given the fact that we are a newly founded chapter competing with 42 established chapters across the country,” said Amith Skandhan, MD, SAMC hospitalist and Vice President of the Wiregrass SHM. “We believe this award has, in a way, validated our efforts and for that, we’re tremendously grateful.”
Skandhan stated that in 2016, the chapter is working toward receiving the Chapter Excellence Award, which is the highest chapter honor offered by SHM. Wiregrass SHM will seek to identify and engage future leaders of the hospital medicine movement, enhance the professional and public perception of hospital medicine, and more.
