The Magee Adult Medical-Surgical ICU is a 14 bed state of the art multidisciplinary unit that admits critically ill patients from Internal Medicine and related sub-specialties such as Obstetrics, Gynecology and Oncology services as well as General, Bariatric, Gynecologic/Oncology, Urology, Orthopedic, Breast and ENT surgical services. Critical Care Medicine attendings also cover the separate 6-bed specialized Obstetric ICU, admitting and managing critically ill Obstetric patients with viable pregnancies. The Magee ICU prides itself in providing multidisciplinary patient-centered care aided in large part by the deliberate architectural design of the unit that was inspired by input from former patients, their family members and ICU care providers.
The Magee ICU patient care team manages the Hospital Rapid Response System and, by ensuring that critically ill patients receive the right care in the right place and at the right time, plays a critical role in keeping the Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC a national leader in tertiary Womens’ Health Care. As reflected in the unit vision statement, all staff are committed to providing compassionate, patient centered and evidence based care driven by a commitment to lifelong learning.
