Overview

Critically ill patients require highly specialized care, as well as the latest equipment and technology to facilitate a comfortable recovery.

Services

Located in the east wing of Mount Nittany Medical Center, the medical and surgical intensive care unit (ICU) provides this level of care for the adult patients that need it.

The surgical ICU is located on the first floor, near the operating room and ED. It is for patients who require critical cardiac care and treatment. The medical ICU, a 12-bed unit on the second floor, is a telemetry unit, generally for patients whose conditions are improving but still require some close monitoring. It is also used when the surgical ICU is full.

Critical care patients receive highly individualized, multidisciplinary nursing care from staff specially trained to handle life-threatening medical needs.

Both floors of the ICU provide leading-edge amenities to improve patient care, including:

  • High-tech patient beds that adjust to avoid bedsores in long-term critical care patients
  • Full-room, bird’s-eye monitoring and an open floor plan
  • Computerized access portals outside windowed rooms that medical professionals can use to observe patients without disrupting them
  • The latest ventilating systems — negative-pressure suites available to patients that may need them
  • Private consultation areas for staff to discuss medical issues with family members without interruption
