Located at the 4th floor of the AAMCH, The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is a specialized facility dedicated to patients who require intensive monitoring, nursing care and complex respiratory support. The ICU is staffed 24 hours a day by 14 board-certified specialists and 31 seasoned critical care nurses, nurse practitioners and physician assistants who are committed to providing quality clinical care.
With a ceiling-mounted service unit to house medical equipment and deliver critical power, the beds in our ICU are no longer tethered to the wall. This allows the beds to be rotated and positioned freely to the most optimum environment. The ICU is also positioned in close proximity to the operating theatres so patients can receive emergency treatment as quickly as possible.
High Dependency Unit (HDU)
The High Dependency Unit (HDU) is for patients who require a higher level of observation, treatment and nursing care than that offered in a general ward but not so much that it requires admission into intensive care. For those moving into the HDU from the intensive care facilities, this move is often seen as a welcome sign of progress as it means that the patient is improving, gradually establishing more normal eating and sleeping patterns, and is a step closer to going home. It is adjacent to the ICU on the same floor, with 8 dedicated beds. The red zone is also located nearby for patients with critical condition, with 7 dedicated beds.
