Intensive Care Unit
Main Hospital, 2nd floor
Enter the hospital through the main entrance and take the elevator to the 2nd floor.
The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) specializes in the management of adult and geriatric medical and surgical patients who have or are at high risk for a variety of life-threatening conditions. All ICU patients require intensive, multidisciplinary assessment and management to stabilize and/or prevent complications, thereby achieving optimal outcomes and decreasing the length of inpatient stay.
The unit is comprised of 14 full-service intensive care beds under the guidance of an Intensivist and a multidisciplinary critical care team composed of nurses, respiratory therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, pharmacists and case coordinators.
Patients in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Sibley Hospital are cared for 24 hours a day by a team of health professionals led by Intensivists. Other members of our ICU team include critical care nurses, pharmacists, respiratory therapists, nutritionists, physical therapists and case coordinators. The entire team makes daily rounds on every patient and develops a plan of care for the day which is communicated to the patient, patient family members, primary care doctors, as well as other physicians involved in the patients care. This type of coordinated care improves the quality of care and better overall outcomes.
