If you live in Yadkin County and you or a family member need to be in the hospital, we encourage you and your doctor to consider Yadkin Valley Community Hospital as a comfortable, convenient place to get the in-hospital care you need.
In our bright, spacious medical-surgical unit, we offer:
- Acute care
- Restorative care
- Overnight clinical care
- Palliative care
- Hospice care
All of our inpatient services are delivered by a team of qualified, caring professionals, including a full-time staff hospitalist, nurses, nursing assistants, therapists, technicians and specialized support staff.
High-Quality, Compassionate Hospital Care, Close to Home
Our small size and location in the heart of Yadkin County make our inpatient services especially convenient, easily accessible and highly personal. Our patient rooms and visitors' areas are clean, quiet and comfortable. Our care-givers are warm and friendly and typically get to know patients and their families well.
We have 22 inpatient beds, each in a private room with its own bath, that can be used for providing acute care during a traditional hospital stay.
As a critical care hospital, we are expected, on average, to keep our patients in acute care no more than four days before either sending them home or transferring them to a higher level of care, if needed.
For patients who no longer need acute care, but who can benefit from more time and therapy to recover and regain strength before leaving the hospital, we are approved to convert our acute care beds to "swing beds," allow us to offer the same types of restorative care, therapies and support services available at skilled nursing facilities.
Patients transferring from acute care to restorative care usually stay in the same, familiar room. The care-givers they've gotten to know during their hospital stay continue as part of the multi-disciplinary team of nurses, therapists and other hospital staff charged with carrying out their individual restorative care plans.
Observation and Short-Term Clinical Care
When a patient's condition is stable but requires monitoring and treatment at the hospital, usually during an overnight stay, admission for observation and short-term clinical care may be appropriate.
Most patients admitted for observation come to us from our Emergency Department or from area doctors' offices. They may simply be watched by our nurses for changes in their condition, or their doctors may order fluids, blood transfusions and other treatments and therapies to relieve pain and other symptoms before we send them home, admit them for longer-term care or refer them to a more specialized facility.
Palliative and Hospice Care
In our Palliative Care unit, we care for patients with serious, chronic diseases, with a primary focus on improving their quality of life by managing pain and other symptoms caused by the disease and its treatment.
Within Palliative Care, we work with several area hospice agencies, providing the inpatient hospice care to patients approaching the end of life.
Yadkin County's Hospital of Choice
If you live in Yadkin County and you or a family member need hospital care, ask your doctor about admission to Yadkin Valley Community Hospital.
Doctors who do not ordinarily admit and make rounds at our hospital may refer patients to our full-time hospitalist for admission and care during their hospital stay.
Our hospitalist consults with and keeps patients' referring doctors and family members well informed throughout the hospital stay.
At discharge, the hospitalist sends a summary report, including diagnosis, test results, medications and dosages, to your doctor, along with our suggestions for your continuing care.
