7 Bed ICU

  Oak Tree Hospital also has a 7 bed ICU, which utilizes “best clinical/research practice” methods, for the management of critically ill patients. Our effort is to provide multidisciplinary, high-quality care to patients and communicate closely with the family during their stay in the ICU. The ICU Medical Director is board certified in both Internal Medicine and Pulmonology, and is readily available for consultation with staff. Our ability to treat the more medically complex cases is enhanced by 27 different physician specialists, ranging from
anesthesiology to urology. The ICU staff consists of RN’s that have successfully completed critical care courses, as well as ACLS. Over 40% of the therapist in the Respiratory department are registered. With a staffing ratio of 2:1, these disciplines work diligently together to maintain an 86% ventilator wean rate. Other specialized care includes, but not limited to: Cardio-vascular hemody-namic monitoring and stability, sepsis/multi-system failure, chemotherapy, complex orthopedic and ab-dominal surgeries, and wound care complications.
