Sydney Adventist Hospital's Medical Assessment Unit turns one!

A spiritual blessing has been held in celebration of the 1st anniversary of Sydney Adventist Hospital’s Medical Assessment Unit (MAU). 

More than 1700 patients have been cared for by the dedicated team in the MAU since it opened last year, in ten specifically designated beds on Gee ward. Earlier this month the number of beds was doubled to 20. 

The purpose of the Medical Assessment Unit is to fast-track definitive diagnosis and treatment plans for patients from Emergency Care. The MAU model of care benefits patients through expedited clinical assessment and rapid diagnostics – all within the first 24hours. 

Reflecting on the last 12 months, Dr Auriel Jameson, Clinical Director of the Unit expressed her deep gratitude for the efforts of Emily Stephenson, Nursing Unit Manager of Gee Ward, the nursing team, the doctors, nurses, physios, pharmacists and all staff who have made the Unit a success. 

To conclude official proceedings, Chaplain Kym Cross delivered a short blessing. 

“We come before you today with hearts full of gratitude for the team of nurses and full allied staff who tirelessly serve and care for others on Gee Ward.  Thank you for their compassionate hearts, skillful hands, and selfless dedication.  We lift them up to you and ask for strength, wisdom, and protection over each of them and their families, continue to bring healing and comfort to those they care for for those that come through these doors,” she said. 
Following the blessing attendees enjoyed a light morning tea.
