Intensive care units are areas in hospitals where very ill or injured patients receive specialized care 24 hours a day.


Most patients will be cared for by one nurse. For patients whose health is improving, one nurse may care for two patients. We treat patients with a variety of injuries and illnesses, including:

  • Trauma
  • Burns
  • Transplant
  • Shock
  • Chronic or acute respiratory failure
  • Infections
  • Renal (Kidney) failure
  • Neurological or brain conditions
  • Bleeding or clotting
  • Multiple Organ Dysfunction Syndrome – MODS
