Intensive Care

Innovations in Critical Care

Intensive care units (ICUs) or critical care units, exist within our hospitals to provide specialized care for seriously ill patients. This care includes intensive monitoring and advanced life support.

Across our health system, our ICUs are renowned for their innovation in telemedicine, which allows attending critical care physicians and nurses to monitor and communicate with patients remotely using videoconferencing equipment. The state-of-the-art technology also provides for real-time access to each adult ICU patient’s medical chart and vital signs.

Our Adult Critical Care Units

Patients in our critical care units receive the highest level or most intense care of any section of the hospital, and they are continuously monitored for complications.
