Inpatient Medicine

When your care requires an overnight stay with us, you can rest easy. Not only will you have the attention of one of our hospitalists throughout your entire stay, you’ll also be under the watchful care of either our experienced medical-surgical nursing or ICU teams.

No matter how long or short your stay with us, you’ll benefit from the expert and compassionate care of our medical, nursing, and support staff. From on-site access to diagnostic and testing services to essential therapies and carefully prepared meals approved by your doctor, you’ll find both the care and comfort you need to make your stay as pleasant as possible.

SVMC’s Nursing team is Magnet Recognized — a program that distinguishes healthcare organizations for quality patient care, nursing excellence, and innovations in professional nursing practice. For you, the patient, this translates to a high level of care, safety, and satisfaction.

Inpatient Areas


Staffed by a highly qualified team of board certified physicians and ACLS (advanced cardiac life support) certified nurses, SVMC’s ICU is dedicated to caring for the needs of critically ill patients and those recovering from major surgery. The Unit is recognized by The Joint Commission and provides constant monitoring and compassionate care to patients when they need it most. 

Medical-Surgical Unit

On any given day, more than a dozen patients can be on SVMC’s medical-surgical unit for likely a dozen different reasons. But while the needs of each patient are different, each benefits from the skill, collaboration, and compassion of our Medical-Surgical Nursing team.
