The Magee Adult Med-Surg ICU moved into their newly built 4th floor unit in June 2012. The 14-bed state of the art unit admits critically ill patients from Internal Medicine and related sub-specialties, Obstetrics, Gynecology and Oncology services as well as General, Bariatric, Gynecologic/Oncology, Urology, Orthopedic, Breast and ENT surgical services. There is an additional 6-bed ICU specially equipped and staffed for critically ill Obstetric patients with viable fetuses. 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 women’s health. All staff are committed to providing compassionate, patient centered and evidence based care driven by a commitment to lifelong learning.
