Critical Care Medicine

The Department of Critical Care was organized in 1997 to develop a unified, multidisciplinary approach to critical care in our 52-bed, state-of-the-art, Intensive Care Unit. Critically ill medical and surgical patients are managed by a multidisciplinary team of board certified intensivists trained in the fields of Anesthesiology, Pulmonary Medicine and Surgery, critical care fellows, Anesthesiology housestaff, mid level providers, critical care nurses, respiratory care practitioners, pharmacists, nutritionists, physical therapists, ethicists, social workers and members of the clergy. Our team works side by side with the primary oncology teams to treat the life threatening complications that sometimes arise during a cancer patient’s treatment.
