Our highly skilled team of critical care specialists understand the complex needs of seriously ill or injured patients. We diagnose and treat a wide range of life-threatening conditions, including infectious illnesses, pneumonia, flu, asthma, brain injuries, stroke, heart attack and heart failure.

We’re here when you need us most, providing the comprehensive care you want, including virtual critical care and emergency transport.

Specialized Care 24/7

From around-the-clock monitoring to virtual care, our experts offer exceptional care in our intensive care units (ICU) at Atrium Health hospitals throughout the Carolinas. The critical care team works together with families and patients to provide compassionate care.

Patients may also receive treatment at one of our specialty ICUs:

  • Cardiac and thoracic surgery intensive care units that serve patients recovering from surgery to the heart, lungs, esophagus and other organs in the chest
  • Surgical trauma intensive care units that provide emergency care for severely injured patients
  • Neurosurgical intensive care units that provide care for patients facing brain injuries, stroke or tumors

Virtual Critical Care

Virtual critical care technology allows us to provide 24-hour, real-time monitoring for critically ill patients, connecting the intensive care unit team to a central command center operated by critical care physicians and nurses. Using two-way audio/video communication, our virtual critical care and ICU teams work together to help patients safely leave the ICU as soon as possible.
