PIERRE, S.D. – (DRG News) Avera St. Mary’s Hospital said today that changes will soon be made to its Transitional Care Unit. The TCU is currently located on the 4th floor of the hospital, but starting April 1, 2013, it will be relocated to a specialized area on the 2nd floor of Avera Maryhouse Long Term Care. The number of licensed beds will remain at 80. The TCU is for patients who no longer meet requirements for an acute care facility, but are unable to return home. Planning is underway regarding what will be done with the space that will soon be vacated at Avera St. Mary’s Hospital.
