Intensive Care Unit (ICU)

The Hospiten Group Intensive Care Units are responsible for treating and caring for patients requiring careful observation and/or treatment and interventions that only these units can provide. This includes multiple trauma victims, critical states of certain curable diseases and postoperative care for major surgery (heart surgery, neurosurgery, etc.) and high-risk patients.
