Critical Care Medicine


Intensive Care Unit

The Intensive Care Unit (ICU), located at Belleville General Hospital (BGH), is a regional critical care unit that provides care to the sickest patients served by Quinte Health hospitals.

Often, patients who are in the ICU have a serious health condition or injury or have just had major surgery.

The goals of the ICU are to:

  • stabilize the patient’s condition
  • keep the illness from getting worse
  • prevent new complications
  • provide specialized treatment to help the patient make the fullest possible recovery
