Critical / Intensive Care

Clinical Trials

The Critical Care Unit at Olathe Medical Center is a specialized area with highly trained staff and sophisticated equipment designed to care for our seriously ill patients. Critical Care patients include those who have just completed complex surgeries or those who have suffered serious injuries or illnesses.

Specially trained teams work together in the care for critically ill patients. Depending on a patient’s needs, the team may consist of several physicians and nurses, as well as representatives from respiratory therapy, pharmacy, nutritional care, physical or occupational therapy, speech therapy, care management and discharge planning. The skills and expertise these professionals bring to the team ensure that each patient receives the best possible care.
