Northern Westchester Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is a medical community, providing patient-centered care, for seriously ill medical and surgical patients. The nursing staff is well-experienced, providing the necessary critical care. Our hospital ICU is staffed continuously by Pulmonary Medicine/Critical Care Medicine trained and board-certified physicians.
The ICU critical care team is highly diversified and includes ICU physicians, nurses, medical/surgical specialists, medical ethicists, respiratory therapists, a pharmacist, Chaplin, case manager and nutritionist, all with exceptional clinical expertise in meeting the needs of our critically-ill patients and their families.
Additionally, we have continuing support from The Ken Hamilton Caregivers Center. The Caregivers Center is dedicated to the emotional support and well-being of our patients and family members during an acute, devastating illness.
The 16-bed Intensive Care Unit provides concentrated and continuous care to patients with a present or potentially life-threatening condition. In addition to the specially trained nursing team, our hospital ICU is staffed around the clock with Intensivists—physicians who are fellowship-trained and board-certified in critical care medicine. These physicians provide 24 hour coverage of all patients, monitoring changes in status, administering necessary treatments and providing ongoing management of complex cases.
