Nutrition

Registered and licensed dieticians are available by appointment to assist with disease management, illness prevention or weight management.

Pharmacy

Inpatient pharmacy dedicated to serving our hospitalized patients. Ensuring that the right medication is delivered to the right patient at the right time is a critical core competency of pharmacy services.

Respiratory Therapy

The full-scope Respiratory Care Department provides diagnostic and/or therapeutic procedures to inpatients and outpatients of all ages.

Telemetry

Telemetry provides monitoring for patients who are experiencing heart or lung related illnesses, yet do not need the extremely intensive level of care of the ICU. Patients being monitored on Telemetry are observed by our Intensive Care Nurses in coordination with the patient's primary care nurse as the patient’s clinical condition changes.

Spiritual Care

Spiritual support can play a key role in the healing process and can help patients and family members through challenges associated with illness or injury. St. David’s hospitals offer spiritual support through volunteer chaplains that is respectful of each individual’s spirituality, religious beliefs, privacy and dignity.
