The Frances and Dominic Moceri Medical Intensive Care Unit, a new 12-bed, private-room unit for patients with critical illnesses, has opened at Beaumont Hospital, Troy.
“The Moceri Medical Intensive Care Unit allows us to enhance our care for some of our most fragile patients,” says Nancy Susick, president of Beaumont, Troy. “Patients with complex conditions such as pneumonia and chronic asthma, major pulmonary embolism, acute and chronic renal failure, lower gastrointestinal hemorrhage, and liver failure will be treated in an area that has latest medical technology available.”
Located on the fifth floor of the hospital’s Critical Care Tower, the unit features panoramic window views and a central nurses station, which supports six integrated nursing stations located between each set of patient rooms.
All of the rooms are located on the exterior walls of the unit and both semi-private and private-bath options are available.
The unit was created with funds from local luxury property developers Frances and Dominic Moceri, who donated $10 million to the hospital last October.
In addition to the unit, the Moceris’ donation has established the Moceri Learning Center Endowment and funded construction of the Frances and Dominic Moceri Learning Center, which will open in November.
The Learning Center is a 20,000-square-foot educational complex for physicians, nurses, and other clinicians at the hospital, as well as students of the Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine in Rochester Hills.
The Moceris have developed numerous high-end residential communities in metro Detroit as well as luxury homes in Bloomfield Township, Bloomfield Hills, Franklin, Northville Township, Oakland Township, Rochester Hills, Troy, and West Bloomfield Township.
