The New Patient Care Unit at Vail Health
A new addition to the Patient Care Unit features five new, private patient rooms designed to promote a healing environment in a new location of the PCU corridors. With incredible views of the mountains, the rooms offer a quiet, serene atmosphere for improved patient- and family-centered care. With more space in each room, the entire care team can meet at the bedside. Physical and occupational therapy can also now be conducted in the room.
