In health care, more may not always be better.
Patients throughout the country are looking to hospitals to provide safer, higher quality care. For many years, it was perceived by many people that more tests and treatments would lead to better care. This is not the case, in some instances.
Middlesex Hospital opened a new Diagnostic and Interventional Suite at its main location in Middletown in September. The Suite is a “hybrid” mix of state-of-the-art equipment to perform delicate cardiac catheterizations, and a variety of vascular imaging and interventional radiology procedures.
A key component to Middlesex Hospital’s mission is to provide the best experience possible to our patients. Above and beyond the high-quality care and innovative technology the Hospital offers, it is critical that patients feel well cared for and receive the personal attention they deserve while they are in the hospital. The “Mission Moment” column is meant to provide examples of this level of care.
