The Intensive Care Unit is specially equipped to care for patients who require close observation. This unit has 5 beds and provides care for a combination of medical and surgical patients. Every intensive care patient is provided with continuous cardiac monitoring and IV access. Other equipment available for use includes: Oxygen therapy, a defibrillator, a transvenous pacemaker, suction, non-invasive pulse oximeter, and non-invasive blood pressure monitoring as well as invasive hemodynamic monitoring equipment. The unit works in conjunction with the Respiratory Department to provide mechanical ventilation as needed.

The Intensive Care Unit also has sixteen telemetry transmitters, which allows 24-hour cardiac monitoring in the comfort and privacy of patient rooms.
