Hamilton Health Sciences
Intensive Care Unit (ICU)

About Us

The Intensive Care Unit is a unit where patients receive constant care and are closely watched by a highly specialized health care team.

Remember you are not alone. The ICU team is here to support you and your loved one. Patients who are in the ICU are usually critically ill or unstable. The goals of the ICU are to:

  • Provide specialized treatment and care to help the patient get the fullest possible recovery
  • Help to stabilize the patient's condition



Ways to give

The generosity of our community has helped the INTENSIVE CARE UNIT to remain a leader in medical advances and live up to their excellence in patient care, research and education.

Many want to give to the Juravinski hospital to say thank you for the treatment received for their loved ones or themselves. There are many ways to give to HHSC. Please ask the bedside nurse or charge nurse. Forms are located outside the ICU or click here for more information.


U Rock awards-Staff acknowledgments'

To continue to enhance patient and family centered care we have developed the "U Rock" awards. These are given to staff by their peers, patients and  patient families to recognize outstanding caring and kindness.


What is new for the ICU?

The ICU, along with many other departments at the Juravinski hospital, moved on August 2010 into a brand new facility. The new ICU has 13,200 square feet of space.
