A state-of-the-art Surgical/Trauma Intensive Care Unit (STICU) is offered at St. Mary's. The eight-bed unit is designed specifically for surgical or trauma patients who require continuous care, observation and/or therapy not available outside an intensive care setting.
St. Mary's is one of the first 20 hospitals nationwide that uses a Latitude arm system for monitoring patients. The system's flexible design means the bed can be placed wherever it makes the most sense -- against the wall, away from the wall, toward the hallway or window. The Latitude system allows caregivers to set up the arm configuration exactly as needed for gas, electric, and accessory access. Electronic (not pneumatic) brakes create a safer, quieter environment. the latest computer technology and monitoring capabilities completes the suite of advancements seen in this new unit.
