Exclusive Order
This hospital has a long history of providing quality care to the region. With campuses in St. Marys and Ridgway, and physician offices in several locations throughout the region, we proudly serve the residents of Elk and Cameron counties. Our ongoing mission is to provide premier healthcare through a commitment to service, quality, people, stewardship and growth.

A progressive care nurse (PCU RN) works in a progressive care unit (PCU) and cares for patients requiring close monitoring and frequent assessment, but who aren't unstable enough to need ICU care. PCU RNs use computer equipment to monitor cardiac and other vital information and detect any changes, thereby enabling intervention of life-threatening or emergency situations. Close observation is necessary as many PCU patients receive a significant amount of complex meds, sometimes through an intravenous line that may need to be adjusted or titrated. The PCU RN is sometimes also called a step-down nurse or telemetry nurse, and the PCU is also known as cardiac stepdown, medical stepdown, neuro stepdown, surgical stepdown, and ER holding.
