Intensive Care Units (ICU)

Intensive care is a very complex and stressful environment for staff, patients, and relatives. Health care professionals from various medical specialties work together to provide coordinated care specific to the patient’s needs. The ICU, or critical care staff at Baptist hospitals, care for patients with severe illnesses or injuries such as organ failure, surgical complications, premature birth, strokes, cancer, trauma, and respiratory arrest.

ICU Technology

Baptist ICUs are fully equipped to provide advanced intensive care, including mechanical ventilation (the use of a breathing machine to assist the patient's own breathing efforts or to take over the work of breathing for him or her). We also have the equipment to take over the function of the kidneys if these have failed. In fact, the renal replacement machines used for this purpose can be run 24 hours per day, seven days per week, if necessary.
