Intensive Care Unit
Diligent Patient Care in a Visitor-Friendly Setting
Having a loved one placed 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.
