INTENSIVE CARE UNIT (ICU)
The Board of Directors and Management at Western Hospital are very pleased to report that the new Intensive Care Unit at Western Hospital has been extensively utilised and has attracted more surgeons performing major surgical procedures.
A Staff Medical Officer (SMO) supported by an Intensivist is available 24 hours per day / 7 days a week to support the surgical / medical inpatients. Extended Pathology and Radiology services are available to support the Intensive Care Unit.
The ICU and medical backup ensure that those patients considered higher acuity (higher risk) are now able to be managed at Western.
