DETROIT, Aug. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Patients with critical illnesses at Beaumont Hospital, Troy will receive the latest medical care available with the opening of the Frances and Dominic Moceri Medical Intensive Care Unit, a 12-bed, private-room unit, made possible by a major gift from the Moceri family.
"The Moceri Medical Intensive Care Unit allows us to enhance our care for some of our most fragile patients," said Nancy Susick, RN, 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."
The Moceri MICU features 12 private rooms with both semi-private and private baths, plus space for family members and visitors. All rooms are located on the exterior walls of the unit, which provides window views and natural light. A nurse's station is the central point of the unit. Six integrated nurses' stations are located between each set of patient rooms to enhance patient care.
In addition to the Medical ICU, the Moceri's gift funded construction of the Frances and Dominic Moceri Learning Center and established the Moceri Learning Center Endowment. 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.
The center will also offer community health wellness events and programs for the public. The Learning Center will open in November.
"We believe strongly in generational responsibility," said Dominic Moceri, who built Moceri Companies, with his sons, from the ground up, during the past five decades.
"We've built our business on creating communities that are beautiful, but also sustainable, healthy places for families to live. We're thrilled that we have the opportunity to extend our philosophy by connecting the latest in medical knowledge and to practice advanced bedside care in ways that can help create better medical outcomes for the patients and families at Beaumont, Troy," Moceri added.
