Advanced ICU Care, the nation’s largest provider of tele-ICU (intensive care unit) services, recognized Marlyn Moir, AdventHealth DeLand manager of cardiopulmonary, sleep and neuro-diagnostics services, with the 2019 “I See You Care” award.
Advanced ICU Care is AdventHealth DeLand’s partner in providing high-acuity telemedicine services in the ICU. This award recognizes the collaboration between bedside care providers in the hospital and Advanced ICU Care’s remote critical-care teams.
There were five categories of recognition for direct caregivers: physician, nurse, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, and respiratory therapist. Moir was one of 11 recipients honored from nearly 90 hospitals across the nation for providing the best of critical care to the patients.
Moir was recognized in a surprise ceremony at AdventHealth DeLand on March 28 and also honored with a donation in her name to the AdventHealth DeLand Foundation to support the hospital’s Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) services.
Moir was instrumental in changing culture around best practices related to ventilator management at AdventHealth DeLand. Her new approach to quality improvement has benefited the ventilated patients and has been noticed by other hospitals for possible adoption.
“We are so proud of Marlyn and thrilled that Advanced ICU Care has recognized her for the great work of our respiratory therapists,” said Craig Lindsey, AdventHealth DeLand chief nursing officer. “This award recognizes the teamwork and collaboration between our staff here in the hospital and the remote tele-ICU staff. It is this collaboration that is critical to caring for patients in the continuous-care environment of an ICU.”
AdventHealth DeLand has 164 beds and is one of the six hospitals in Flagler, Lake and Volusia counties that comprise the AdventHealth Central Florida Division – North Region. Formerly known as Florida Hospital DeLand, the organization’s parent company changed the name of all wholly owned entities to AdventHealth on Jan. 2.
