Critical Care

Compassionate Treatment for Severe Illness and Injury

When you need life-saving critical care, our board-certified pulmonologists and critical care physicians are here to support your whole family through this difficult time. From helping you understand your condition to guiding you to the best possible treatment decisions, we’ll be by your side for every step of your diagnosis and treatment.

Specialized and Coordinated Round-the-clock Services

Whatever your critical care need, we have the technology and expertise to help. Our specialists are ready to help you through a wide range of critical care conditions, including:

  • Acute respiratory failure
  • Drug overdose
  • Heart attack
  • Heart failure
  • Kidney failure
  • Multiple organ failure
  • Pneumonia
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Sepsis
  • Stroke
  • Traumatic injury

Here, we believe in taking a team-based approach to care. And that means you’ll have specialists, surgeons, nurses, therapists, dietitians, pharmacists, case managers, clergy and more—all working together to provide the depth of know-how and experience you need to get on the road to recovery.

Critical Care You Can Rely On

Here, we uphold the highest standard of care for patients in the ICU. Our dedication to patient health at both Owensboro Health Regional Hospital and Owensboro Health Muhlenberg Community Hospital has been recognized by national organizations.

We’re proud to say that both have earned a sepsis certification through The Joint Commission and that Owensboro Health Regional Hospital has been certified as a Level III Trauma Center by the American College of Surgeons. To achieve this certification, we must provide fast trauma care with emergency medicine physicians and surgeons available any time of day or night and continue to provide advanced care to you throughout your recovery in our ICU.

These are just a few of the ways we bring you peace of mind.
