  • Overview

    Opening in August 2019, Orange Regional Medical Center will be adding 20 beds to enhance ED throughput. Typical observation patients are ED patients who require further treatment or diagnostics before being safely discharged. By providing an alternative to avoidable admissions, observation units allow hospitals to reserve inpatient beds for patients who truly need them which relieves hospital crowding, as well as ED crowding, because more inpatient beds are available.
