Intensive Care has two separate clinical areas; the General Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and the Cardiothoracic Intensive Care Unit (CICU). The Cardiothoracic Intensive Care Unit is geographically separated from the General Intensive Care but located on the same floor with staff rotating seamlessly through both areas.
