The WHS Critical Care Unit (CCU) is located on the 5th floor of WHS Washington Hospital. This team delivers specialized care for patients with severe conditions, life-threatening illnesses or major surgeries that require close monitoring or a higher level of care.

Patients receive round-the-clock bedside monitoring by our critical care team. The team consists of CCU Physicians and Pulmonary Specialists, Cardiologists, Surgeons, Pharmacists, and Nurses that are trained in intensive care.

Frequently Asked Questions

While we don’t encourage constant visiting (critically ill patients need rest) we have open visiting hours for your convenience.

Live plants, especially with soil, are discouraged because the microbes they harbor may cause further illness to a critical patient. However, we understand you want to show support for your loved one. Mylar balloons, cards, or some small personal belonging may be more appropriate and just as comforting.

You can call in directly to CCU at (724) 223-3073 and ask for the patient’s nurse. If the patient is no longer in CCU, the hospital operator (724) 225-7000 can appropriately direct your call.
