The Critical Care Program at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) provides comprehensive and continuous care to critically ill or hospitalized patients through the hospital’s Intensive Care Unit (ICU).
Some examples of patients who may need critical care during the course of their cancer treatment include:
- Patients who experience infections or complications
- Patients with respiratory problems
- Patients who undergo cancer surgery
- Patients with co-existing medical conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease.
Why We’re Different
Each CTCA hospital’s ICU provides specialized nursing care, including oncologic, surgical, cardiovascular, and respiratory care. Patients in the ICU receive advanced monitoring and care 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
