Intensive Care Nurses

  Linda Castner, RN, CCRN

Our ICU is an 11-bed multi-specialty critical care unit. From heart attack and stroke, to severe respiratory insufficiency and overwhelming infection, each patient has unique needs.

Our staff of nurses, doctors, respiratory therapists and other medical support personnel provides special around-the-clock attention for patients with life-threatening conditions, providing peace of mind for patients and their families.

Each room is equipped with state-of-the-art monitoring equipment to provide constant surveillance of the ever-changing needs of the patient in the ICU.

In addition to our high tech side, we strive to meet the human and caring needs of our patients and families. Each room in the ICU is equipped with a message board that lists all nurses and other staff who are responsible for the patient’s care each day, along with any procedures or tests that the patient will be undergoing. This allows family to be aware of what is happening and provides a basis for interactions with the patient and the hospital staff.

Eight of the nurses hold advanced certifications in Critical Care Nursing.
