Critical Care

Greenwich Hospital's critical care units treat patients who need complex, specialized care and constant monitoring. Patients and their families benefit from an extensive range of skilled specialists led by the unit's medical director, a board-certified critical care specialist (intensivist).

The critical care team includes neurologists, cardiologists, orthopedists and pulmonologists, as well as nurses, pharmacists, respiratory therapists, dietitians, speech, physical and occupational therapists, clergy, social workers and case managers.
