Intensive Care Unit

The Wesley Hospital's Intensive Care Unit (ICU) provides a comprehensive range of tertiary level services to cover the extensive range of systems and procedural support commensurate with the functions of the hospital. There are a total of 19 intensive care beds and it is one of the largest private intensive care facilities in Australia.

The Director of the ICU is a Fellow of the Joint Faculty of Intensive Care Medicine and is actively involved in clinical care, training and research. Trained Resident Medical Officers are available onsite 24-hours a day. Highly trained and appropriately qualified nursing staff provide intensive nursing care. Allied health professionals (physiotherapists, occupational therapists, dietitian and pharmacist) add to the multidisciplinary approach to patient care.

The ICU boasts state-of-the-art monitoring technology and equipment and these are upgraded on a regular basis. The ICU participates in quality assurance activities, both locallly and nationally, through the Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Society.

Due to the nature of intensive care, visiting hours are preferred after 10.00am, and visitors are limited to close family and only two visitors per patient at a time. Other visitors are permitted upon the family's request.
