Medical excellence and state-of-the-art monitoring
Staffed by board-certified physicians and highly trained Intensive Care Specialists who are supported by leading technology, the Medical Intensive Care team at HackensackUMC Mountainside offers a focused, collaborative approach and the highest level of care and treatment.
Most often, intensive care is needed for patients on mechanical ventilation, those requiring hemodynamic monitoring or those recovering from heart attacks or major surgery. Our ICU also cares for patients in shock, and for those with acute renal failure, sepsis shock and multi-organ system failure.
HackensackUMC Mountainside’s 16-bed ICU unit is staffed with nurses who have special training in critical care, with critical care certifications, and who monitor patients 24 hours a day. In addition, our ICU team takes an integrated approach to the full spectrum of care by coordinating the plan of care with all team members including physicians, nurses and technicians. Together they work in concert with our patients’ entire network of support, from their personal physicians to their families.
