Advanced critical care medicine

The ICUs at our hospital are equipped with advanced patient monitoring systems. Our monitoring equipment ensures nurses remain constantly informed on every patient's vital signs and alerts our staff if any changes in condition are detected. Additionally, the nurses' workstation is conveniently located right outside the patient rooms in the ICU. This enables our nursing staff to respond quickly to emergency situations and other patient needs.

Coordinated critical care

We also use electronic medical records, which allows authorized staff members to instantly access up-to-date patient information. This means physicians can stay informed on their patients' conditions from anywhere they have secure internet access — in the hospital, in the office or even at home.
