ICU

The ICU, or intensive care unit, is the department of the hospital where you can receive specialized care and monitoring from multidisciplinary care teams. You may need to be in the ICU during times of critical illness or after certain surgeries, to ensure you recovery fully.

Critical care we offer

Wherever you are in the Greater Denver area, you can receive intensive care at any of our network hospitals. The teams of doctors, registered nurses, therapists and technicians that work in these ICUs have special training to provide advanced care when you are critically ill.

Specialized intensive care

Our ICUs provide the critical, attentive care you need for serious medical conditions. You may need to be admitted to our ICU if you are recovering from a complex surgical procedure, severe illness or traumatic injury. Although each of our hospitals offers advanced ICU care, some have dedicated units for more specialized critical care. For example, Swedish Medical Center's Level I Trauma Center has four dedicated adult ICUs:

  • Burn ICU — for patients who have suffered major burn injuries
  • Cardiac ICU — for patients who need specialized heart-related care and monitoring
  • Neuro ICU — for patients who have neurological needs, such as those who have had a stroke or traumatic brain injury
  • Trauma ICU — for patients who have suffered severe traumatic injuries

Neonatal intensive care

With our comprehensive network of neonatal resources, our facilities provide highly specialized care in our neonatal intensive care units (NICUs). This includes the region's largest Level IV NICU, where your baby can receive the highest level of care. Your baby may need a NICU if they are ill, premature or have other special medical needs.

Pediatric intensive care

Children may also need intensive care to recover from serious illnesses, injuries or surgeries. If your child is one of these special patients, we offer pediatric intensive care units (PICUs) at both our Rocky Mountain Hospital for Children and Swedish Medical Center campuses. Highly trained teams provide comprehensive care and monitoring 24/7 to ensure your child has what they need to safely heal and recover.
