Surgical Critical Care

Main Number: 617.414.4861

Surgical Critical Care encompasses comprehensive care for critically ill surgical and trauma patients, all of whom have undergone highly complex surgical procedures or are being treated for severe illness, demand close monitoring, and require the highest level of care.

The Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU) is a state-of-the-art facility that includes monitored step-down beds. An attending intensivist is in-house 24 hours a day, seven days a week, providing oversight, assessment, and management.

Surgical Critical Care requires a high level of monitoring, continuous consultation, and customized plans of care for each patient. In addition to members of the Department of Surgery, this multidisciplinary approach brings together many subspecialty services as well as members of Case Management, Nursing, Nutrition, Pastoral Care, Patient Advocacy, Physical and Occupational Therapy, Rehabilitative Medicine, Speech-Language Pathology, and Social Work. This multidisciplinary group meets regularly to ensure holistic and complete care for each patient and family.
