Throughout Saint Joseph Mercy Health System, most of our campuses offer nursing careers in the critical care specialty. Nurses on our units form strong partnerships and collectively advocate for the patient.
Our interdisciplinary team treats high-acuity patients in a faith-based atmosphere that supports open visitation for loved ones. It’s a fast-paced yet comfortable environment, where family members are treated as part of the care team. Critical Care is one of the most challenging fields in nursing and we support that with a strong emphasis on safety and advanced technology.
While resources vary by facility, we are continually investing in our hospitals by installing patient lifts and upgrading to the latest ICU beds. We provide proning therapy on rotational beds, Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy and implementation of all of the Keystone initiatives. We also offer ongoing education with unit-based educators as well as a series Critical Care Core classes designed to increase skills. Ensuring that each member of our team has access to the latest industry knowledge is one more way that we strive to deliver remarkable care.
