Critical Care Unit (CCU)
The CCU is considered a "locked-down" unit with limited access. All visitors check in via an intercom at the entrance. Once cleared for entry, all visitors are asked to report to the nurses' station prior to entering any patient care area. The CCU is located on Level 3 in the center of the building adjacent to the Medical Surgical Unit. There is a service elevator down the hall to the left of the CCU for transporting patients directly from the Emergency Room on Level 1 and also to and from appointments to other departments on the first floor, such as radiology.
