What We Do

The Intensive Care Units at The Ottawa Hospital are special units that care for patients with acute, life-threatening illness or injury.  Critical Care is provided by specially trained ICU teams of physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists and other allied health professionals who use their unique expertise and ability to provide intensive resuscitation, ongoing treatment, and monitoring to the hospital’s sickest patients.
