When the condition of a hospitalized patient becomes extremely dangerous or critical, they are immediately transferred to the intensive care unit (ICU) of the hospital. The ICU at Mission Regional Medical Center is a fully integrated multi-specialty critical care unit.
At PMG, we work hand-in-hand with critical care nurses, respiratory therapists, nutritionists and a multitude of medical and surgical consultants to ensure that the highest level and most advanced critical care medicine is delivered to each of our patients with confidence and immediacy. We are experienced in handling many critical illnesses from respiratory failure and loss of blood pressure to multi-organ failure and neurosurgical catastrophes.
Our doctors believe that critical care also includes respecting the overall health and well-being of the whole patient and understanding their personal and emotional needs. This requires empathy and communication to ensure that the patients and their families can have confidence in the personal, respectful and hig-quality care the patient is receiving.
If you need to speak to one of our critical care doctors, please call 949-443-4303. Our critical care patients come to us from Mission Viejo, Laguna Niguel, San Juan Capistrano, San Clemente, Irvine and nearby areas in South County, CA.
