ICU stands for Intensive Care Unit. The intensive care unit is where patients are placed when they need a higher level of care, observation and monitoring during an illness or after surgery.
There are many illnesses and injuries that can lead to the need for intensive care.
In intensive care, clinical staff closely watches the patient 24 hours a day. The wires and monitors may seem overwhelming, but it this specialized care that offers the best outcomes.
Patients at many of our Banner Health hospitals benefit from an additional layer of care provided by the advanced technology called TeleICU. Our remote team of intensive care specialists partner with your bedside care team to provide you with 24-hour-a-day, 7-days-a-week monitoring when you are in the ICU.
Most Banner Health hospitals offer Intensive Care for patients who need more monitoring.
