Cardiothoracic Intensive Care Unit

The Section on Critical Care in the Department of Anesthesiology cares for patients in the 22-bed Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit.  In the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit we can provide state of the art care for patients suffering from complicated heart disease. 

We care for patients after heart surgery or major chest surgery and we assist our Heart Failure team in providing care for their patients in the Intensive Care Unit.

Our physicians are all board certified in Critical Care.  They lead our team of skilled nurse practitioners and physician assistants, nurses, pharmacists, and respiratory therapists to provide care for you or your loved one.  A member of our team is available 24/7 in the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit. 

Our ICUs have open visitation, except for 6 am – 7 am and 6 pm – 7pm each day.  While our rooms are private, they can easily become crowded, so we do ask that you limit visitors to two in the room at one time. 

The monitoring equipment and support machines can make the intensive care unit (ICU) a noisy and confusing place.  We are happy to explain our plan of care to you and your family, and to make your stay as stress free as possible.
