Gibault Memorial Tower is open to the public offering an array of services
and staff ready to greet you with medical expertise, cutting-edge technology
and big hearts.
The BEACON project broke ground on June 12, 2012. Costing $109 million,
it not only involved construction of Gibault Tower (200,000 square feet,
five stories, 120 new beds), it included a redesign of key health care
service areas and an upgrade of critical engineering systems. Construction
was green (as in, environmentally conscious) and is expected to result
in a 27 percent energy savings.
Gibault Memorial Tower has five floors, each with a specialty area: Cardiology,
Intensive Care, Pediatrics, Medical Surgery, Joint Replacement, Women's
Health and Oncology. Each floor has easy-access restrooms, waiting rooms
and snack options (coffee shop and chapel are on the first floor).
Welcome to our heart hospital within the hospital. All cardiac consultative,
preventive, diagnostic and treatment services are in one location. There
are two state-of-the-art catheterization labs, one of which is a hybrid
lab/surgical suite, which allows us to do diagnostic and surgical intervention
in one space. Plus, we have consultative, pacemaker, anticoagulation,
lipid and congestive heart failure clinics and a beautiful rehabilitation
facility to encourage you to get back on your feet.
Intensive Care. Though most people don’t plan to end up here, we
are prepared for anything with an army of RNs and medical specialists,
including those from primary care, pulmonary, cardiology, surgery, gastroenterology,
nephrology and orthopedics. We have 30 acuity-adaptable rooms, each including
a family area with a recliner or love seat, bathroom/shower and lockable
patient closet. Patient-nurse ratio is 4:1, or 2:1 for more acute cases.
Pediatrics and Nursing Care. This floor features pediatrics and boasts
rooms specifically built for high-quality nursing care with all a medical
team needs in one space.
Joint Replacement and Medical Surgery. Home of the Joint Replacement Center,
this is where you go for elective hips and knees. The floor has 30 rooms
total, with 25 dedicated to surgical patients. All are private rooms with
private bathrooms and, just to spoil you a little more, the unit has a
spa and styling chair.
Women's Health and Oncology. Prepared to be babied on the fifth floor.
This floor provides large labor and delivery rooms with built-in furniture
and floor-to-ceiling windows, postpartum rooms with room for families
and a C-section room with an attached recovery suite. The newborn nursery
is close by and can accommodate babies who need special attention. This
floor also features eight oncology rooms.
