Intensive Care

Intensive Care Unit

Services
Mercy Regional Medical Center's Intensive Care Unit (ICU) provides critical care to patients with life threatening injuries or illnesses. These individuals have sustained or are at risk of having one or more vital functions, systems, or organs fail. We monitor, provide care, and assist these patients in the recovery process so that, ultimately, they can experience a better quality of life.

Staff
The ICU is staffed by a multidisciplinary team of caregivers who have advanced skills and education in aspects of cardiovascular care, care of potentially unstable conditions, and care of critically ill or injured patients. ICU physicians, or "intensivists," are board certified in critical care medicine. Other team members include cardiologists, respiratory therapists, and ICU nurses who receive a minimum of 10 continuing education hours per year and are certified in advanced cardiac life saving (ACLS) and pediatric advanced life saving (PALS).

Transitional Care Unit (TCU)

Services
Mercy Regional Medical Center's TCU provides post-cardiac intervention care, coronary care, and care to medical/surgical patients who require frequent monitoring and close observation. The TCU staff has the ability to rapidly respond to patients if necessary. Such patients might include patients who leave the Intensive Care Unit, inpatients undergoing dialysis, children, and patients receiving chemotherapy treatment.
