Critical Care

Mercyhealth Hospital-Rockton Avenue has two critical care units that care for patients who have the most serious, and often life-threatening, injuries and illnesses.

Both units are staffed by a team of highly trained critical care and specialty physicians and nurses who provide constant, close monitoring using specialized equipment.

In 2012, Mercyhealth Hospital-Rockton Avenue became the first local hospital to launch the most advanced telemedicine program available in hospital critical care units today.

To do this, we partnered with Advanced ICU Care®, the nation’s largest independent tele-ICU provider, to provide critical care monitoring 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our critical care team directs the care of patients in the RMH critical care units, while intensivists from Advanced ICU Care use state-of-the-art technology in a centralized monitoring center to observe and evaluate critically ill patients around the clock.
