This is why our ICU is a 12-bed unit that offers advanced patient-monitoring equipment and is staffed by a highly trained, multidisciplinary team. They not only provide expert healthcare but also make treating patients with compassion and respect a top priority.
The ICU staff includes:
- Physical therapists

Advanced technology for continuous care
Continuous, close monitoring is a vital component of each patient's care plan when they are in the ICU. Our ICU's specialized equipment constantly keeps the nursing staff informed on each patient's vital signs, alerting them to any changes in condition. When a change is detected, the nurse's station is located right outside the patient rooms, enabling a quick response in emergency situations.
Our hospital also uses electronic medical records. This means doctors always have immediate access to the most up-to-date patient information. They can review patient information from anywhere in the hospital and even at home. So whatever your medical needs are, they can be met by the expert, caring staff in our ICU.
