Critical Care Medicine

Anesthesiology Critical Care Medicine service takes primary responsibility for the Surgical Intensive Care unit at the Veterans Administration Medical Center and for the Cardiac Surgery Intensive Care Unit at Jackson Memorial Hospital. In addition our attendings share the staffing needs of the Trauma Intensive Care Unit for Ryder Trauma Center of Jackson Memorial Hospital. Our patient populations are diverse with an array of co-morbidities.

Our staff provides not only excellent patient care and relevant clinical research but personalized teaching in a supportive environment to medical students, advanced registered practitioner students, residents and fellows. We maintain a fully accredited fellowship in Critical Care Medicine for those interested in extensive training in that area.

Our goal is to provide the most effective and immediate care possible to patients who become critically ill. We endeavor to care not only for the patient but the family.
