About Us

The Cardiac & Intensive Care Unit (CICU) is where patients receive constant care and are closely watched by a highly specialized health care team.



 This combined unit cares for patients with cardiac needs such as:

  • chest pain
  • heart failure
  • heart rhythm problems
  • heart attack
  • breathing problems as a result of heart problems
  • post-surgical monitoring

Patients who are in the CICU critical care beds are usually critically ill or unstable.  The goals of the critical care are to:

  • stablize the patient's condition
  • keep the illness from getting worse
  • prevent new complications
  • provide specialized treatment to help the patient get the fullest possible recovery
