No one looks forward to a stay in the hospital, but when it is necessary, the professional compassionate staff at Ireland Army Community Hospital's Unit 2B is ready to provide top-notch healthcare to you and your family. Our diverse nursing staff offers over 200 years of combined nursing experience from all areas of the world. Military families have unique circumstances and we are the best prepared facility to accommodate you. If your family is not close by, we will do everything possible to provide you with the support needed for your recovery.

We provide patients the best care and outcomes possible. By utilizing a multi-disciplinary team of health professionals, we can ensure a quick and successful recovery for our patients. With the combined resources of a world-renowned health system, cutting-edge technology and gold standard nursing practice, you can be assured that you're receiving the best care possible.

Our nursing staff understands the many factors that affect your health and recovery and our low nurse-to-patient ratio enables our nursing staff to focus on your physical, emotional and spiritual needs. This results in less anxiety and a quicker recovery.

We also believe that families also play an integral part in the healing process. Therefore, we encourage family members to become involved in the patientís care.

Unit 2B is committed to a nursing practice that respects and cares for all patients equally. We highly value creativity and use the multi-disciplinary approach to problem solving. We are strong advocates of patients and actively support the Patient Bill of Rights. We are committed to staff development in education, research, and training to support the Readiness Mission.

Procedures

Whether you are being admitted to the hospital for a dental extraction or a knee replacement, our comprehensive approach to treatment will put you on the fast track to recovery.

Nursing and diagnostic services personnel will collect, assess and communicate vital information to your health care providers to ensure that you receive what you need, when you need it. Our facility has multiple ancillary services available to our patients such as physical therapy, audiology, mental health services, allergy and immunology, chiropractic, podiatry, nutritional care, and spiritual counseling.

Privacy

Our nursing staff is committed to protecting the confidentiality and privacy of all patients, at all times. You can be sure that your personal and health information is being processed with care throughout your stay.

Pain Management

Pain is considered one of the most unpleasant side effects of surgery and some procedures. We offer several pain management options including breathing, relaxation, and pain medications. We believe the patient knows best when it comes to managing their pain and we fully rely on the patientís feedback.

Amenities

The unit is conveniently located on the second floor of the hospital. All rooms are equipped with comfortable adjustable beds, nurse call systems, monitoring systems, telephone, recliner, cable television, and bath.

We offer a liberal visitation policy to allow families to play an active role in your recovery.
