The Critical Care Unit (CCU) in Potsdam was newly renovated in May 2019. It has six rooms, and three of them are equipped with patient lift assist systems. To ensure that unique patient needs are met, one of the six rooms has been designed as a negative-pressure quarantine room, but can be used for any critical care patient.
The majority of the Critical Care patients come from the Emergency Department and the CCU staff members work collaboratively with the Level III Trauma Center specialists. The CCU team continuously monitors and cares for patients with critical-level diagnoses until their condition is stable enough to transfer to inpatient status.
