A method of providing more efficient acute medical care in a large, municipal, university-affiliated teaching hospital was achieved by the introduction of an intermediate medical care unit within the Department of Medicine. Four wards, containing 104 beds (78 men, 26 women) serviced the General Medical Division (208 beds) and the Medical Chest Division (148 beds). The staff consisted of seven full-time, salaried ECFMG (Education Council for Foreign Medical Graduates) physicians with 3 years of approved American residency training. They were supervised by four part-time attending physicians from the clinical staff of the Department of Medicine.
Patients were eligible for transfer
