This year, the Golf Classic will support South Shore Hospital’s new Critical Care Unit (CCU). The first part of this project, The Richard and Joann Aubut Critical Care Unit, a state-of-the-art 24-bed CCU on the new 5th floor of the Messina Building, opened in October of 2017. There is still work to be done as the project continues through the renovation of the existing CCU to become a 24-bed Intermediate Care Unit. This new unit will provide care for patients who are too ill for a general Medical/Surgical floor, yet do not need the intensive level of care found in the CCU. The Intermediate Care Unit provides flexibility in patient flow through their journey to health and allows our clinicians to care for their patients in the appropriate physical space.
Last year, a record of 280 golfers enjoyed a day on the links at Pinehills Golf Club to help raise funds for the Critical Care Platform at South Shore Health System. More than $250,000 was raised, including funds to purchase a Vigileo Monitor for the Richard and Joann Aubut Critical Care Unit at South Shore Hospital!
