The hospital's acute service is located in the Regan Building. This unit consists of 77 beds and serves as the hospital's initial assessment and evaluation unit. This building also treats patients from the hospital's long-term care and psychiatric units who have developed medical conditions that require intense monitoring and therapeutic intervention.
