Intensive and Progressive Care Units
Hillsboro Medical Center offers advanced critical care to patients facing a life-threatening illness or injury.
Intensive Care Unit
The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) provides care for those with severe medical conditions. The ICU includes:
- Highly trained doctors and critical care nurses who specialize in caring for seriously ill patients.
- 24 hours/7 days a week monitoring.
- Specially designed ICU rooms for the most acute conditions.
Progressive Care Unit
Patients with cardiac, neurological, post-surgical and post-trauma conditions are closely monitored in the Progressive Care Unit (PCU). The PCU also provides intermediate acute-care nursing for patients whose heart rate and circulation are stable.
The unit is equipped with wireless cardiac monitoring. All nurses on this unit maintain an Electrocardiogram (ECG) rhythm recognition competency and are Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certified.
