Intensive Care Unit
Diligent Patient Care in a Visitor-Friendly Setting
Having a loved one place in intensive care can be stressful, but rest assured
that in this unit they will be under constant supervision from medical
staff and have immediate access to advanced medical technology. Upon being
admitted to the ICU, patients are evaluated by a physician to determine
the type and extent of care to be provided. In the event a patient requires
care outside of the ICU services offered, our staff will make the necessary
arrangements to transfer the patient to a facility where they can get
what they need.
The ICU is staffed by specially trained Registered Nurses and Telemetry
Technicians. These compassionate professionals are committed to meeting
the unique physical, psychological, and social needs of every patient.
We Encourage Visits from Loved Ones
In many hospital ICU’s, visiting is allowed but very limited so as
not to disturb the rest of other patients. Nothing matters more to us
than the health, safety, and comfort of our patients, but we also understand
the value visits from loved ones can have on the healing process. We have
designed our ICU to allow for longer and more frequent visits from guests
while still providing all of our patients with the peace and quiet they need.
