The Express Admission Unit

The Express Admission Unit (EAU) is a link between the outpatient departments and the inpatient units. ER, OR, or transfer patients come here on their way to being admitted, and nurses in the EAU get them prepared for admission. This team works together to do an admission assessment, start the patient on any ordered therapies, and implement plans of care--all before the room on the regular nursing floor opens up! This fast paced environment sees patients from all service lines.


Our staff members include RN’s, Certified Nursing Assistants, Patient Care Assistants, and Health Unit Coordinators who work together to provide exceptional patient care.  Our department is high energy and team oriented, with patient and staff satisfaction as a high priority. We currently use a self-scheduling module that covers a six week period.  Staff work three 12-hour shifts per week with an every other weekend rotation.  We have a supportive environment and orientation is tailored to your needs.


If you enjoy a variety of medical conditions and thrive in a fast paced environment, then our Express Admission Unit is a place to call home.
