ICU

The ICU, or intensive care unit, is the department of the hospital where critically ill patients are housed for treatment by a multidisciplinary medical team. Patients in the ICU may require specialized medical equipment and close monitoring by a nurse.

Intensivist approach to critical care

Our board-certified critical care specialists — also called intensivists — use their advanced skills to perform specialized, lifesaving, bedside procedures in our 36-bed ICU. An intensivist is always on-site in our ICU.

Benefits of our intensivist approach

With this intensivist approach, we are able to react immediately as circumstances change and provide the rapid, specialized treatment our ICU patients need exactly when they need it. This results in significantly improved patient outcomes and satisfaction.

This intensivist approach provides more benefits, including:

  • Appropriate placement of patients in the correct level of care
  • Decreased hospital-acquired infection
  • Decreased mortality
  • Decreased ventilator days and associated complications
  • Fewer adverse events
  • Fewer clinical and procedural complications
  • Patient safety prioritization
  • Reduced length of stay in the ICU

Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU)

Our hospital is also home to a NICU. Here, our neonatal care team — which includes neonatologists and NICU nurses — provides advanced care to babies who need extra care and monitoring after birth. This team works closely with the obstetrician gynecologists (OB/GYNs), midwives and hospitalists in our labor and delivery unit. Additionally, our NICU offers 24/7 security for the safety of the babies in the NICU and the peace of mind of their parents.
