GRMC Special Care Unit (SCU)

Compassionate Special Care

The purpose of the Special Care Unit (SCU) is simple even though the practice is complex.

Healthcare professionals who work in Gila Regional's SCU provide around-the-clock monitoring and treatment of patients seven days a week. This close-knit, experienced group works closely with many different specialized physicians and receives high ratings for their ability to offer individualized care to patients - from infant through elder.

Patients are generally admitted if they are likely to benefit from the level of care provided. It has been shown to benefit patients who are severely ill and medically unstable — that is, they have a potentially life-threatening disease or disorder. Patients and their loved ones are grateful for the continual, one-on-one attention the staff in SCU is able to provide.
