Surgical Critical Care

Main Number: 617.414.4861

The SICU team cares for patients with multisystem trauma, neurotrauma, or multisystem organ failure, as well as those who require perioperative hemodynamic monitoring or critical care for a wide range of general, vascular, thoracic, urologic, neurologic, and orthopedic diseases. The newly renovated Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU) at Boston Medical Center is a 28-bed, state-of-the-art unit that admits more than 1,500 patients annually.

Surgical Critical Care faculty, all boarded in surgical critical care and with additional qualifications in traumatology and acute care surgery, provide 24/7 services. Surgeons in the group are full-time faculty members of Boston University School of Medicine.

  • Case Management
  • Pastoral Care
