CSP News

Expanding CSP Services. Expanding support.  The Phase 2 Consolidation Plan for CSP will mean an increase in Cardiology CTUs and associated inpatient beds (expected to be implemented in July) and Consultation Services at both the Grace Hospital and HSC. To support these services the CSP complement of CA/PAs is expected to significantly increase.  9.6 additional EFTs will be expected to onboard this fall- supporting consultation services at HSC and GGH as well as additional daytime and evening support for the Cardiology CTUs.
