Our 25,000 square-foot Intensive Care Unit (ICU) houses the most advanced medical technology, and was designed with patient comfort and care in mind.
The ICU’s round design ensures nurses have a clear line-of-site to their patients – and centrally positions nursing stations so staff can work bedside to better monitor and document patient conditions. The rooms feature over the head booms rather than lines coming out of the wall that were previously used to run cables and tubing, allowing nurses to access patients easier.
Other features include an advanced nurse call system enabling information sharing across multiple systems, which will assist in reducing errors, improving performance, and eliminating wasted time and effort. A new Telemetry system will allow physicians to remotely view their patients’ heart rhythms.
Additionally, our $2 million Siemens Magnetom Aera 48 Coil 1.5 Tesla MRI scanner is the most advanced MRI technology in South Central Kansas, including Wichita, and is capable of producing incredibly high-resolution images of internal organs-particularly the heart, intestines, and prostate.
Our ICU receives visitors 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We ask that you respect the privacy of other patients and family members by stepping out to the waiting area during shift change reporting times from 6:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Visitors may return to the patient’s room immediately following the completion of reports.
We treat a number of serious conditions and diseases, including but not limited to:
- Bypass Surgery (CABG)
- Post PTCA
- Carotid Stenting
- Myocardial Infarction
- Carotid Endarterectomy
