Critical Care

About Critical Care

Critical care, or intensive care, is the specialized management of patients with life-threatening conditions requiring around-the-clock, invasive monitoring and support to specific body systems, such as respiratory, heart, vascular, and other organs.

The UMMC Difference

The Wallace Conerly Critical Care Hospital at UMMC houses four intensive care units (ICU). Each ICU has access to board-certified intensivists 24 hours a day, and a specialized team to manage patients with diagnoses including, but not limited to, trauma, sepsis, shock, respiratory failure, cardiac diseases and surgeries, stroke, and traumatic brain injuries.

The Wallace Conerly Critical Care Hospital also houses a bone marrow transplant unit with a specialized staff that provides state-of-the-art care for patients suffering for hematologic malignancies.

UMMC also has specialized ICUs for babies and children.

UMMC Telehealth provides additional patient monitoring through electronic ICU (eICU), a remote monitoring center staffed by experienced ICU nurses and board-certified critical care providers.
