Support Services

The Institute of Critical Care Medicine offers support services to help critically ill and injured patients as well as their loved ones. We offer special services for our patients to reduce stress and alleviate pain. These complementary services offer care for the mind, body and spirit.

Critical care services save lives by providing immediate responses to acute needs. Whether due to a sudden accident or a medical complication, the need for critical care can come at any time. Unlike standard care services, critical care services are offered to individuals in life-threatening situations. Therefore, it is essential that critical care services be thoroughly reliable with a staff capable of responding to a wide range of emergency situations.

People with life-threatening illnesses and/or injuries often require the attention of a team of specially-trained health care providers in an intensive care unit. These patients are cared for and monitored around-the-clock with the most up-to-date equipment including respirators, feeding tubes, and catheters.

Critical care specialists are also skilled in sensitive areas such as end-of-life decisions, advance directives, and counseling. Our highly collaborative approach to treatment ensures that patients and families are supported and informed at all times.
