From sports injuries, low back and neck pain, and joint replacements to Kinesio taping and wound care, our therapists help patients build strength and increase function for a greater quality of life. Therapy services are offered in our facility and, in some cases, the comfort of a patient’s own home.
Recovering from a surgery can be difficult. The UCGH staff assists and monitors patients returning from surgery.
Our staff educates and prepares patients for their recovery upon leaving UCGH so that patients know what to expect when recovering and what to do should complications arise.
The Union County General Hospital Respiratory Care Department assists with smoking cessation, asthma education, COPD monitoring, and the management of both acute and chronic pulmonary disease. When breathing becomes important to you, turn to the Respiratory Care team at UCGH.
Laboratory testing is a common tool for detecting and confirming medical conditions and determining the best course of treatment. Under the clinical supervision of a pathologist, the Union County General Hospital lab serves our patients with state-of-the-art test equipment, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The nursing staff at UCGH is committed to the best patient care. Whether acute or intensive care is required, our skilled registered nurses, aides, and providers provide the highest level. Our hospital is home to inpatient care programs which include IV Therapy, Acute Care, Intensive Care, and Telemetry.
If you snore, experience pauses in your breathing during sleep, cannot stay asleep, or are tired all day, you may have a treatable medical condition. The UCGH Sleep Study Lab can help. With the sleep study, our providers can determine how to help you get a better night’s sleep.
Diagnosing and treating diseases and injuries require medical imaging techniques. These techniques play an important role in monitoring a patient’s treatment and predicting the outcome. The radiology department of UCGH is equipped with some of the most up-to-date and state-of-the-art technology available in the industry.
