Critical Care Services
Critical Care Medicine is the branch of medicine that specializes in the care of patients whose condition is life-threatening and who require comprehensive care and constant monitoring, usually in a critical or intensive care unit.
You should be comfortable in knowing, should you or any member of your family require care in a Critical Care Unit, that all PCCA physicians are board certified in Critical Care Medicine and have the latest training in all aspects of Critical Care.
Communication between health care providers and family members is an important part of Critical Care Medicine. PCCA physicians work closely with your private physician, medical/ surgical specialists, as well as ancillary professionals to coordinate the care provided to the critically ill patient.
Our physicians meet regularly with the patient and family to provide information regarding the patient’s diagnosis, condition, treatment plan, and prognosis. They work with the patient and their family to ensure the treatment plan is consistent with the patient’s previously stated or written wishes.
