Intensive medical-surgical services are provided in Kent hospital’s 15-bed Intensive Care Unit (ICU). The ICU is under the direction of an intensivist, a physician who is board-certified in the specialized care of critically ill patients. The unit is staffed by a multidisciplinary health care team, which includes a physician, nurse, physical therapist, respiratory therapist, social worker, nutritionist and pastoral care.
Patients benefit from advanced technology and a personalized approach to meet the needs of each individual and their families. Due to the severity of the patient conditions on this unit, special visitation guidelines are necessary.
