Critical Care Services
Centinela Hosptial’s Critical Care Services Unit provides constant
complex health care for various acute life-threatening conditions for
medical, coronary and surgical patients. Our Critical Care Units are staffed
with highly trained and qualified Board Certified intensive care physicians,
registered nurses, technicians and support staff. We have a wide range
of advanced monitoring and resuscitation equipment in each unit and will
provide you with prompt, high quality medical care. Our staff work collaboratively
with your primary care physician to determine the best treatment options
