Why choose Ochsner Health for intensive care?
Some of the most high-stakes care in medicine takes place in the medical intensive care unit, or ICU. In this unit, also known as a critical care unit, physicians, nurses and other specially trained professionals provide around-the-clock care for patients with life-threatening conditions. No one plans to spend time in the medical ICU, but if you need critical care, you and your family want to be confident you’re in good hands. At Ochsner, we provide leading-edge, high-quality critical care in intensive care units throughout Louisiana and Mississippi, helping patients through some of the most serious medical challenges they face.
