Inpatient Recovery Teams
The Cardiac Intensive Care Unit provides around-the-clock specialized medical and nursing care for patients with myocardial infarction, severe myocarditis and other life-threatening heart diseases. In this state-of-the-art setting, each room is private and is located just steps away from a nurses' station. The registered nurses in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit are specially trained in the field of cardiology. This allows them to provide outstanding care to all patients in the unit.
Definitive Observation Unit (DOU3)
Patients in the Definitive Observation Unit do not require the intensive level of care of the CICU but do require cardiac monitoring and a more intensive nursing care than provided in most ward areas. Our DOU3 is a 54-bed unit where patients with acute cardiovascular conditions receive treatment and excellent care for their individual medical and surgical needs. Patients can also receive support from specialists in care coordination, nutrition, pharmacy, social work, spiritual care and rehabilitation services.
Medical telemetry serves inpatient cardiovascular patients awaiting surgery or other cardiovascular intervention, as well as recovering patients who no longer need the critical care environment of our Cardiac Intensive Care Unit. Telemetry patients receive continuous observation, monitoring, and specialized care. Nurses view patient heart activity through a centralized computer system.
