NeuroMedicine Intensive Care Unit (NMICU)
The NeuroMedicine ICU (NMICU) provides multidisciplinary care to critically ill patients with complex neurosurgical and neurological life threating illnesses, as well as patients in shock states and/or with organ failure. Patients are admitted to the unit directly or as transfers from other hospitals and all patients are admitted to the unit as inpatients. Services are provided at our new state of the art facility at Strong Memorial Hospital. The unit operates 24 hours per day, 7 days per week.
The $5.5 million, 5,500-square-foot unit consists of 12 beds and is staffed around the clock by an extended multidisciplinary team trained to treat the most challenging and difficult neurological disorders. The neurocritical care team members include neurointensivists, neurologists, neurosurgeons, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, critical care nurses, anesthesiologists, respiratory therapists, social workers, physical therapists, speech-language pathologists, occupational therapists, nutritionists, and clinical pharmacologists.
