Our Services

Intensive Care provides specialized monitoring and treatment to patients of all ages 24 hours a day. The Intensive Care staff performs admission assessment and screening of patients, and develops a plan of care that addresses the patient's physiological, psychological, social/cultural, spiritual, and environmental needs.
We treat patients who have a variety of conditions including cardiac, respiratory or infectious diseases, diabetic patients, cancer patients requiring pain management, patients needing end of life care, and any patients who need outpatient services that cannot be accommodated in same day surgery or the procedure suites.

The medical unit serves a wide range of age groups, from pediatric through geriatric patients, with many patients coming from area nursing homes. The primary diagnoses for patients include pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, congestive heart failure, sepsis and gastrointestinal disorders.
Surgical Care provides care for patients who have undergone general surgical procedures, including joint replacement. 

Dedicated to caring for their patients with quality care and compassion, the Surgical Care staff focus on patients needs. They take measures to control pain and to educate patients both pre-surgery and recovery post-surgery.

We are here with you day in and day out

At HSHS St. Mary's, our ICU colleagues show up day in and day out focusing on the health of their patients. They often hear from their patients and their families how grateful they are for the care we provided to their loved ones. One letter said it best. A patient's family wrote, "You are unbelievably strong as you look at pain and suffering in the face. Thank you for doing this for our family and loves ones."
