ONTARIO – Jamie Taylor knows the new intensive care unit at Saint Alphonsus Medical Center – Ontario is a big deal.

The critical care unit manager for the Ontario hospital said the six new ICU rooms mean the Ontario hospital will be more versatile in delivering high-quality health service in the future.

 “The unit will be instrumental in giving our community the best care possible,” said Taylor.

Wednesday afternoon Taylor stood at the nurse’s station in the new ICU wing of the hospital as just down the hall a small crowd gathered for an open house to celebrate the new addition.
