Intensive Care

Kingston Health Sciences Centre (KHSC) provides the highest level of intensive care in southeastern Ontario. When patients need life-sustaining treatment that cannot be delivered elsewhere in the organization, or at other hospitals in the region, they may need to stay in one of KHSC's three Intensive Care Units (ICUs).

There are several reasons why someone may need to be admitted to an ICU, including a sudden life-threatening change in their medical condition, they need close observation, or they need specialized care during their recovery from an operation.

KHSC's ICUs are located at its Kingston General Hospital site. Two of the ICUs provide the highest level of care (level III): the Kidd 2 ICU is a 34-bed unit and the Cardiac Sciences Unit specializes in caring for patients with heart conditions. The Davies 4 ICU (level II) has 18 beds. 

All of KHSC's ICUs have highly trained teams who work closely with patients and families on their roads to recovery.

Family members are important members of the care team, so we encourage visiting a patient in the ICU and we are committed to providing support for families with loved ones in the ICU.
