Crozer Changes Names, Locations in Some Nursing Units
On June 4, 2012, changes took effect in several Crozer-Chester Medical Center nursing units, including new names, locations and phone numbers.
These changes are part of Crozer’s continued plan to maximize resources to provide the most efficient, coordinated care for our patients. As part of this plan, each of these units will feature private rooms, which has proven to enhance patient satisfaction.
The grid below details the changes and new information.

Rapid Response and Code 99
Please note that when Rapid Response or a Code is called, telephone operators will announce RR and Code 99 with the unit location and the new name. For example, a code in the Surgical Trauma unit will be announced as “Code 99 4 NE Surgical Trauma Unit,” and a code in the Intensive Care unit will be announced as “Code 99 4 SE Intensive Care Unit.”
