Medical-Surgical Intermediate Care Unit



 

Our 12-bed adult Intermediate Care Unit (IMCU) is adjacent to the ICU on the 6th floor of the hospital. The IMCU staff cares for acutely ill patients who require a higher level of care than patients in a general nursing unit environment. Patients may be directly admitted to IMCU from any area of the hospital, from the Emergency Center, or from providers outside the hospital setting.



The patient population receiving care in IMCU includes medical or surgical patients as well as patients requiring peritoneal dialysis, which uses a membrane inside the body as a filter to clear wastes and extra fluid and return electrolyte levels to normal. Cardiac patients not requiring admission to the Cardiac Care Unit but whose conditions warrant close observation also receive care in IMCU.
