The expansion of the Intensive Care Unit at Johnson City Medical Center (JCMC), approved in 2002 with ground broken on Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2003 and an opening in December 2004, is a shining example of what Patient-Centered Care is all about at Mountain States Health Alliance (MSHA). The $20 million project includes 44,000 square feet of new space as well as a renovation of 7,800 square feet of the existing ICU. The 28-bed addition brings the total number of ICU beds to 49 as well as an additional 10-bed step down unit in a renovated section. Patient rooms will offer wall-to-wall windows offering a panoramic view of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

"This ambitious project, expanding and improving the ICU at JCMC, enhances MSHA’s continuing goal to provide the best Patient-Centered Care in this region," said MSHA President and CEO Dennis Vonderfecht. Odell Associates Inc. of Charlotte designed the new space with the MSHA Patient-Centered Care Philosophy throughout. As the premier healthcare provider for Northeast Tennessee, Johnson City Medical Center, a Level I Trauma Center, welcomes its shining addition to Patient-centered care.
