Intensive care units manage patients who require advanced respiratory support (acute invasive mechanical ventilation) and cardiac support, as well as complex patients requiring care for single or multi-organ failure.

Fraser Health's network of care includes a variety of intensive care units ranging from community units that manage patients requiring some cardiac and respiratory supports (often single or double organ failure) to tertiary care units that manage more complex multi-organ failure patients.



Referral required from a specialist or another department within the hospital.
