Your care team
Cambridge Medical Center prides itself on having caring, expert caregivers who put patients first. Everything we do is designed to meet your needs in an atmosphere that promotes healing and comfort. Our nursing staff's responsiveness and level of personalized, skilled care is second to none. Survey results show that the strong, personal connection our nurses make with their patients stands out as one of the most satisfying parts of their hospital experience.
While in the hospital, you will be cared for by a doctor known as a hospitalist. Hospitalists are family medicine or internal medicine doctors who specialize in diagnosing, treating and coordinating the care of patients while in the hospital. Hospitalists work in partnership with your referring doctor. When you are discharged from the hospital, the hospitalist will make sure your primary care physician is aware of further treatment plans, follow-up care and medications you may require.
A lot of people are involved in delivering comprehensive care to patients. Your care team may consist of doctors, registered nurses, nursing assistants, pharmacists, respiratory therapists, dietitians, social workers, radiology and laboratory staff, and rehabilitation staff as needed.
Specialty Care Unit
For patients who are critically ill or for those with cardiac conditions, Cambridge Medical Center has a dedicated Specialty Care Unit. These special patient rooms are equipped with advanced monitoring equipment. The Specialty Care Unit is staffed with highly trained and certified registered nurses.
The Specialty Care Unit serves adult patient populations needing medical / surgical and cardiac care. Remote cardiac telemetry monitoring services are provided for acute care patients. Pediatric patients are admitted for observation and monitoring only.
To add an adult whose medical care you help manage to your MyChart account, please complete, print and mail or fax both pages of the Adult Proxy Form. The patient (or authorized person) must sign the proxy form and sign to authorize release of his or her medical information.
