Sacramento Business Journal

Mercy Hospital of Folsom began moving patients this week into its $15 million progressive-care unit, the second phase of a long-range plan to meet the needs of the region’s growing population. The unit adds 21 inpatient beds, bringing the total to 106. One of only two such units within Catholic Healthcare West, parent company to local Mercy hospitals, it provides an intermediate level of care for individuals who need less monitoring than provided in the intensive-care unit but more than what is offered in medical-surgical units.
