At Union Hospital, we combine state-of-the-art technology with a highly skilled and compassionate nursing staff to deliver the highest level of care for our most critical patients, those in our intensive care units.
We hope this site can explain what we do in Intensive Care, and help you to understand what is happening if you have a relative or friend being treated in an Intensive Care Unit. If you have trouble navigating the site, please ask your nurse to provide someone to assist you. Coping with critical illness in a loved one is always traumatic. We will do our best to help you through this difficult time. Please take some time to explore the site and find out more about Intensive Care Medicine.

Comprehensive Healthcare Team
Union Hospital's ICU is under the direction of intensivists, physicians who are board-certified in the specialized care of critically ill patients. They are specially trained on all the organ systems, as well as the medications, procedures and technology specific to the treatment of critically ill patients. The intensivists partner with a multidisciplinary healthcare team including other consultant physicians, critical care nurses, pharmacists and respiratory therapists to provide the best and most comprehensive care for our patients.
Advanced Telemedicine Technology
Union Hospital's ICU utilizes telemedicine to connect with other local hospitals and specialists. Telemedicine technology applies audio and video applications to patient and healthcare givers' interactions. This cutting-edge technology is used for the evaluation of specific problems to enhance diagnosis and treatment decisions, particularly by bringing medical expertise to an area that may lack it, e.g., dermatology to a remote setting.
