The Clinical Decision Unit is on the first floor of the Kelemen building. We are a locked unit and require a badge to enter or ring the doorbell to be let in.


We are a 20-bed, single-room unit with the capacity to have 2 hallway bed areas with privacy curtains. The patients are typically here for observation or if needed to be admitted as an inpatient they will stay in CDU until a floor bed is available. A new expansion of the CDU is underway. There are 15 more rooms currently being built to increase the size of the CDU from 20 beds to 35, with hallway capacity also.


Multidisciplinary rounds are done Monday – Friday. This involves the patient in their care and allows the team members to collaborate with the patient to give them the best possible care and appropriate discharge to home or other facilities.
