The team members at PeaceHealth have advanced training in critical care and life support. They include:

  • Intensive care doctors (intensivists)
  • Critical care nurses
  • Respiratory therapists
  • Registered dietitians
  • Rehabilitation specialists

We also offer intensive care for newborns and children, and specialty ICUs for adults who need advanced heart, lung, brain or spine care.

If you’re admitted to a PeaceHealth ICU, we’ll work hard to keep you well-cared for and your loved ones well-informed.

Intensive care at PeaceHealth

The caregivers at PeaceHealth are committed to your health, safety and comfort.

Flexible visiting hours

At PeaceHealth, you may visit patients in the ICU nearly any time of day or night. We only limit visitors during nursing shift changes.

An experienced team

The ICU doctors at PeaceHealth specialize in internal medicine and critical care medicine. Some also have extra training in pulmonary medicine. And our ICU nurses have advanced training in critical care with certifications in advanced cardiac life support.

Your recovery matters most

When you’re healthy enough to leave the ICU, you may need physical, occupational or speech therapy. The certified therapists at PeaceHealth can help you get stronger.  They can also help with speech or swallowing problems or teach you useful ways to manage the tasks needed in day-to-day living.

Advanced trauma care and recovery

We serve patients all over the region. If you or a loved one needs trauma care, you can take comfort knowing we’ve treated very critical and complex injuries.
