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
