Intensivist approach to critical care
Our board-certified critical care specialists—also called intensivists—use their advanced skills to perform specialized, life-saving, bedside procedures at our 36-bed ICU in our hospital's North Tower.
At all times, we have an intensivist on-site in our ICU. The intensivist works closely with associates, physicians, patients and their family members. Once contacted, they provide face-to-face communication with the patient's family.
With this intensivist approach, we are able to react immediately as circumstances change and provide the rapid, specialized treatment our ICU patients need exactly when they need it. This results in significantly improved patient outcomes and satisfaction.
This intensivist approach provides more benefits, including:
- Appropriate placement of patients in the correct level of care
- Decreased hospital-acquired infection
- Decreased mortality
- Decreased ventilator days and associated complications
- Fewer adverse events
- Fewer clinical and procedural complications
- Patient safety prioritization
- Reduced cost per case
- Reduced length of stay in the ICU
