New Acute Cardiac Unit Opens at Lakeridge Health

Lakeridge Health has opened a new Acute Cardiac Unit designed to provide the right care at the right time for people with serious heart illness.The Acute Cardiac Unit is a four-bed short stay unit located at Lakeridge Health Oshawa. It is designed as a ‘step-down’ unit where patients are monitored closely by a team of cardiologists and cardiac nurses until they are ready for care in a general hospital inpatient unit. Funding for the Acute Cardiac Unit was provided by the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care’s Post Construction Operating Program. It is one of six new units to open at Lakeridge Health in the last 18 months.
