At St. Philomena’s Hospital, the most seriously ill or injured people are cared for by the critical care intensivists 24/7. These experts provide specialized care for people who have experienced major surgery or trauma, as well as those with other critical medical needs.
Our intensivists treat people who need advanced monitoring and care. The full spectrum of critical care services is provided by doctors and other medical professionals specially trained in critical care (intensivists) who are present 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
The Critical Care and Multidisciplinary Program emphasizes a team-based approach to care. Critical care doctors lead a team of experienced professionals, which includes resident physicians, respiratory therapists, vascular access specialists, physical and occupational therapists, and nurses trained in critical care. Our intensivists also work closely with doctors from many specialties, including anesthesiology, pulmonary medicine, cardiovascular medicine, neurosurgery, neurology, nephrology and surgery. Together, the team provides high-quality and safe critical care in operating rooms, ICUs and other hospital settings.
