Message from our CEO
Unity Medical and Surgical Hospital (UMSH) is a physician owned hospital that is dedicated to meeting the healthcare needs of our patients. As the Chief Executive Officer, along with our professional healthcare team, we believe that the decisions critical to patient care should be made by physicians who are on the front lines treating patients. The healing environment at Unity is a result of a combination of providers working in collaboration with a qualified, compassionate clinical staff to deliver uncompromised, quality medical care, patient comfort and convenience. A multi-disciplinary team meets with the patient and family on a daily basis to build a holistic treatment plan that is conducive to the patient’s recovery and well-being. Our patients should expect to receive the highest quality of care, and I take that responsibility personally.

UMSH offers:

  • Private, large patient suites
  • Bathroom facilities with walk-in showers, slate tile walls and floors, along with Corian sinks and counters
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Free access to Netflix, Hulu, X-Box and Wii games
  • Gourmet meals for patients and family members designed and prepared by an award winning on-staff executive chef
  • Best in class nurse to patient ratios – one nurse to every two or three patients
  • Easy access in and out of the hospital

LIFE HAPPENS HERE! At Unity, we understand the importance of receiving safe, compassionate, high-quality care and continually make every effort to improve the quality of life for our patients and the communities we serve. Patient safety and excellent patient outcomes are the standards that we provide to all patients and their physicians. Our patients remind us that we are smaller than other area hospitals, but that’s what makes us special. The care received by every patient is personable because to us, you are family. This distinctive approach in delivering quality patient care is the reason why Unity is the TOP HOSPITAL in all Michiana in the area of patient satisfaction.* Why not come experience how we believe healthcare should be delivered?

Sincerely,
John Day
