APD’s ICC Transitions to Emergency Services
On Tuesday, May 5, Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital (APD) announced that it would transition its Immediate Care Center (ICC) — an emergency and clinic service — to a dedicated emergency department on June 1. Patients coming to APD’s Emergency Department will be seen by the same experienced team of healthcare professionals, and will be welcome at any time, for all medical needs.
“In recent years, APD has seen a growing demand for emergency care,” says Ann Marchewka, Vice President for Patient Care and Director of Nursing, “and more patients are presenting with a much higher acuity, including complications of chronic illness. Focusing resources on emergency care will allow APD to better serve our patients.”
Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital is an integrated health care system whose mission is to provide patient-focused health care services that are responsive to community needs, promote wellness, and continually improve the quality of health care services in the Upper Valley community of New Hampshire and Vermont.
