Intensive Care & Progressive Care

A new intensive care unit that includes 24 rooms – doubling the number of ICU beds previously available at the hospital – is conveniently located near the surgery suites, while the 26-bed Progressive Care Unit is housed on the fourth floor. Both units feature unique mini nurses’ stations that are positioned between every two patient rooms. This gives nurses the ability to constantly monitor patients.
