The Critical Care Unit at Providence Holy Cross Medical Center is a specialty care unit created for the patient who requires continuous, comprehensive, and detailed intensive care because of the critical nature of the patient's disease or illness.
Highly Specialized Critical Care
Our Critical Care Unit offers a specialized concentration of skills, equipment and facilities for specialized medical and nursing services—all in a caring, healing environment. Our specially trained critical care team provides expert, around-the-clock intensive care, with a multidisciplinary approach that includes close collaboration and consultations with:
- Nursing staff
- Physical therapists
- Respiratory therapists
- Social workers, when appropriate
- Spiritual care, if desired
Patient conditions are monitored closely through the use of state-of-the-art equipment and technology. Once we determine that critical care is no longer needed, your loved one will be transferred to another unit where registered nurses will continue to monitor his or her progress.
Understanding Critical Care
Having a family member in the Critical Care Unit is stressful. We understand your concerns and want to do what we can to ease your burden. The Visitor Guidelines are designed to allow us to care for your loved one in the best possible way.
Please understand that when your loved one arrives in the Critical Care Unit, our expert team needs time to assess the patient, begin treatment and set up equipment, which can take some time. We realize how hard it is to wait and we ask for your patience as we concentrate on setting up the medical care for the patient. One of our staff members will come out or call out to the waiting room and bring you back as soon as possible.
