Intensive Care Unit

The intensive care unit (ICU) at Brandywine Hospital provides continuous monitoring and treatment of critically ill patients. Because patients in the ICU require specialized care, visitors should understand that their visit might be interrupted or cut short based on the needs of the patient and our doctors.

Critical care is a critical part of our mission at Brandywine Hospital. Our intensive care unit (ICU) serves critically ill, unstable or critically injured patients, treating them with specialized care and attention by our well-trained staff of critical care specialists.

We also value the benefits that having family and friends present during times of crisis can bring, and believe that loved ones are essential members of our ICU team. Even so, during this very stressful time, visitors should understand that their visit might be interrupted or cut short based on the needs of the patient and our doctors. Take our apologies to heart and importantly, use this time to take care of yourself—proper rest and nutrition are just as important for you as for your loved one in our care.

Our ICU is open for visitors from 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. ; 5:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. ; 9:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m.

Special visiting arrangements will be considered on an individual basis. Please speak with the RN.

Before entering the intensive care unit, Please use the intercom system outside of the Unit to notify us of your arrival. Each patient may only have two visitors at a time. No visitors under the age of 14 are permitted in the unit.

Please designate one family member as a spokesperson. With fewer calls to answer, we can spend more time doing what's most important: taking care of your loved one.

Please understand that there may be times when you will be asked to leave the unit so we can provide care, or when the nurse feels the patient needs rest.

Please note: The staff will request the spokesperson to provide a password. Information will only be provided over the phone once both the spokesperson and password are verified.
