We treat adult patients with a wide variety of medical conditions, and this multidisciplinary environment provides endless opportunities for the growth of knowledge and skills.   

Our unit also cares for patients with oncologic and hematologic illnesses. We serve as an overflow unit for gynecologic surgeries and serve the general surgery population as well.    

The nurses and support staff of 9 East are compassionate and empathetic, and our entire staff is invested in the whole team's success. Our nurses are strong patient advocates and strive to give the highest quality of care, constantly adapting to this fast-paced area of hospital care that is Medical-Surgical nursing.

We welcome new nurse graduates into our positive, competent learning environment, and we are always pleased to add experienced professionals to the floor. Additionally, after one year of service, we offer the opportunity to become educated in the administration of chemotherapy and gain experience in the Oncology/Hematology field.

We welcome you to join our team here on 9 East.
