Intensive Care Unit


The Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at BaliMéd Hospital is dedicated to provide 24-hour care for patients with various life-threatening conditions. Supported by the latest medical technology and equipment, our coordinated ICU team of experienced critical care specialists, qualified nurses, and select medical specialists work in close cooperation to provide fast and efficient diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of each patient’s critical condition.


Professional treatment and monitoring of critical condition patients: Our ICU team is fully qualified and experienced in the monitoring and treatment of patients in critical condition. We regularly perform a variety of emergency medical procedures, including the use of life saving ventilators and defibrillators as well as invasive blood pressure monitoring using arterial catheters or the provision of hemodialysis.

Inter-hospital critical care transfers: In order to plan, prepare for and ensure a smooth transfer, our critical care specialists coordinate with and advise the doctors in the related specialization as well as doctors in the Emergency Room. Our critical care team assesses each case and evaluates the safety and benefits as well as the availability of beds, staff and the needed equipment.

Intensive Care Unit (ICU)

Our Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is a specialized facility dedicated to patients who require intensive monitoring, nursing care and complex respiratory support. The ICU is staffed 24 hours a day by board-certified specialists and seasoned critical care nurses, nurse practitioners and physician assistants, who are committed to providing the highest level of clinical care.

This facility leverages advanced technology to ensure patient safety. Patients’ vital signs are transmitted to a central nursing station manned around the clock by our qualified nurses, so the ICU team is able to respond to any changes swiftly and efficiently. With a ceiling-mounted service unit to deliver critical power and house medical equipment, the beds in our ICU are no longer tethered to the wall. This allows the beds to be rotated and positioned freely to the most optimum environment. The ICU is also positioned in close proximity to the operating room so patients can receive emergency treatment in the shortest possible time.

High Care Unit (HCU)

The High Care Unit (HCU), or step-down, progressive and intermediate care unit, is for patients who require a higher level of observation, treatment and nursing care than that offered in a general ward but do not require admission into intensive care.

For those moved into the HCU from the intensive care facilities, this move is often seen as a welcome sign of progress as it is means that the patient is improving, gradually establishing more normal eating and sleeping patterns, and is a step closer to going home.

Intensive Cardiac Care Unit (ICCU)

A Coronary Care Unit (CCU) or Intensive Cardiac Care Unit (ICCU) is a hospital ward specialized in the care of patients with heart attacks, unstable angina, cardiac dysrhythmia and (in practice) various other cardiac conditions that require continuous monitoring and treatment.

The main feature of coronary care is the availability of telemetry or the continuous monitoring of the cardiac rhythm by electrocardiography. This allows early intervention with medication, cardioversion or defibrillation, improving the prognosis. As arrhythmias are relatively common in this group, patients with myocardial infarction or unstable angina are routinely admitted to the coronary care unit. For other indications, such as atrial fibrillation, a specific indication is generally necessary, while for others, such as heart block, coronary care unit admission is standard.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) specializes in the monitoring and care of ill or premature new-born infants. The NICU also admits babies with congenital problems or trauma during delivery and combines sophisticated equipment with trained healthcare professionals to provide specialized care for newborn infants.

Services include:

  • Neonatal intensive and special care
  • Standby for high-risk deliveries
  • High-risk and birth defect consultations
  • Newborn screening
  • Neonatal neurodevelopmental follow-up of premature newborn infants
  • Specialist outpatient consultation
