Intermediate Care Unit

Intermediate Care Unit

The Intermediate Care Unit (IMCU) at St. Charles Bend provides continuity of care for those who are well enough to leave the ICU after surgery or a critical medical event, but would still benefit from close monitoring and intensive nursing care.

The IMCU, a “step-down” unit, is staffed by a highly specialized team of physicians, registered nurses, respiratory therapists and other clinicians. We provide care for patients who need:

  • Heart (cardiac) monitoring
  • Percutaneous coronary intervention, such as angioplasty and stenting
  • Post general surgery requiring acute medical care monitoring
  • Post open-heart surgery recovery and discharge
  • Pulmonary care
