Critical Care at SoutheastHEALTH
The Critical Care Unit at SoutheastHEALTH is a state-of-the-art unit equipped with the latest medical technology and is staffed by highly trained medical professionals who specialize in caring for critically ill patients. SoutheastHEALTH has two Critical Care units:
- 12-bed Cardiothoracic Unit (CTU)
- 14-bed Intensive Care Unit (ICU)
Delivering Excellence in Patient Care and Outcomes Through Innovative Technology
SoutheastHEALTH’s Critical Care physicians are called intensivists. An intensivist is a board-certified physician who provides special care for critically ill patients.
In conjunction with SoutheastHEALTH’s onsite intensivists, we have a continuous, collaborative monitoring system with Avera eICU CARE. This is done using video monitoring and electronic interface within our Cerner Millennium EHR System. Avera eICU may assist in the care of ICU and CTU patients at SoutheastHEALTH.
Many Intensivist physicians are credentialed at SoutheastHEALTH and will provide virtual support to our bedside ICU staff providing 24/7 a week care. The Intensivists work 12 hour shifts and shift changes are 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. (central time).
