The Intensive Care Unit (ICU/CCU) is a specifically designated area where continuous monitoring, assessment, evaluation and treatment are provided to critically ill patients experiencing a life threatening condition. The collaborative effort of the ICU team assures the delivery of best quality care for both our patients and their families. We understand having a loved one in the ICU/CCU can be a stressful and overwhelming experience. You will need support during this difficult time and we are here to help you.

A specially trained team of nurses, doctors, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, dietitians, pharmacists, respiratory therapists, speech language pathologists, social workers and chaplains provides care and support to all critically ill patients and their families during their stay in the ICU.

Visiting the ICU

The patient, if able, will determine who is allowed visitation privileges. Visitors must leave if asked to do so by the patient. Our ICU adheres to the 24 hour MSH Visiting hours, however Shift changes occur at 7 am to 8 am and 7 pm to 8 pm. We ask that all visitors refrain from visiting the patient during these times due to patient confidentiality.  Visiting hours may change based on patient acuity and timing of admissions.
